Canal bridge closed 15-29 november

Dear all,

I write to inform the Beenham Parish Council that West Berkshire Council will shortly be carrying out extended maintenance works to replace the main bearings of the above bridge.

The works are programmed to start on 15 November 2010 and are expected to take approximately 14 days, finishing by 29 November 2010. To allow these works to take place the A340 will be closed with a signed diversion via Frouds Lane. Due to the extent of the works it will also be necessary to close the Tow Path/Footpath Padworth 20/1 to pedestrians from the A340/bridge to the British Waterways car park east of the bridge with a diversion in place via the Aldermaston Footbridge.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate contact me by email or by telephone Direct Line 01635 519839.
