Towpath closure for improvement works

The Canal and River Trust will be making improvements to the Kennet & Avon Canal towpath east of Newbury between Bridge 58 (A339 Flyover) and Bridge 50 Hambridge Road this summer. The work is scheduled to commence on Monday 22 June and be completed by Wednesday 9 September 2020. The towpath will be closed to the public between these dates for safety reasons. During the first week vegetation and preparatory works will be carried out between Bridge 58, (A339 Flyover) and Bridge 53 Whitehouse Cross-over Bridge, following which the whole section will be closed for the main towpath improvement works.
