THE repairs to Bedford Street Bridge (2) on the Caldon Canal have been amended resulting in the waterway being closed for two months.

Bedford Street Br CaldonThe failing parapet panels will now have to be removed and taken away for examination and repair or replacement, Keith Gudgin tells us.


In the meantime, temporary parapet panels are being installed, but this means the canal will by closed from the 22nd January to the 16th March to reinstall the refurbished/new panels and undertake further repair work.

Even that is not the end as the navigation will be closed again next winter.
