Statement from The Canal & River Trust
Published: 26th Sep
We are very pleased and reassured by The Canal & River Trust that issues with swinging the bridges on the River Weaver are now resolved in the short and long term, meaning our planned cruise will be going ahead this year.
STATEMENT FROM THE CANAL & RIVER TRUST
To combat the challenge of dealing with today’s heavier carriageways and more extreme weather, the Trust has now introduced a revised operations and maintenance regime, which aims to improve the reliability and resilience of the swing bridges. This involves Trust staff swinging all five bridges twice a week and regularly monitoring bridge/road gaps to ensure the bridges remain in good working order for the future.
