CRT have work under way to restore the winding point and wharf
area ready for boats to visit when the canal is back in water.
The towpath North of Crickheath Bridge (Bridge 85) will be closed
from the 20th of August 2018 until 28th February 2019
Contractors are restoring the winding hole and towpath.
This will involve sheet piling and excavation work followed by re-lining the canal.
Belan Top Lock has now had a new top gate and its masonry repaired to reduce leakage.
Belan Wharf is again available for use to crane boats in/out of the 13 miles section
of the Montgomery Canal around Welshpool.
In the first instance, boat owners wishing to have their boats craned in/out at Belan
should contact Canal & River Trust's Third Party Works team at email@example.com
The team will then be able to forward on the Trust's Third Party lifting operating
procedure - which is what the mobile crane company will need. This document will
have attached a craneage assessment.
