28-09-2012 : TRENT AND MERSEY CANAL

Due to the heavy rainfall of the last few days there is a breach of the canal at Dutton Hollow, near Preston Brook.

Significant damage has been done to a supporting embankment at Croxton Flash near Middlewich.

To limit potential damage the Canal and River Trust have installed temporary dams and stop planks at a number of locations throughout the affected area including at Bridges 174, Croxton Aqueduct, 181, Bartington Wharf and Bridge 213.

The Flood gates at Marbury and Wincham have been closed and locked shut too.

Engineering teams have been surveying the damage and the repair at Croxton Flash is going to take a number of weeks to complete before the canal there can be reopened and at Dutton Hollow longer still.

To reduce the lengths of canal that are under stop planks and secure the water supply to the whole length of the canal that is affected so that reliable access to the services at Anderton can be established.

Navigation opportunities between Croxton and Preston Brook will be very limited and we would ask customers to remain at visitor moorings in the short term .
