Towpath closed between Green Park and Churchill Bridge

📥  Planned road works, Travel Update, Uncategorized

Works to create the new south facing riverside park as part of the Bath Quays Waterside Project are now over halfway complete.

In order to create the lower promenade, and widen the existing towpath between Green Park and Churchill Bridge, the towpath will need to be closed from Monday 9 January for the remainder of the north bank works. Boat moorings will still be accessible, with pedestrians and cyclists signposted to divert via Ambury, Corn Street, Green Park Road and Green Park cycle path – see diversion plan below.

The widened river bank is designed to accommodate the flow of flood waters, and so once open to the public, access to the bank will be restricted during flood events.

Construction updates will continue to be posted regularly on the project webpage.
