The existing canal width varies between 16 metres and 30 metres approximately and will be reduced to a minimum width of 10 metres over a length of 70 metres approximately to facilitate the construction of the bridge.
The existing canal entrance into the turning area at the end of the canal basin will be closed and the footbridge removed. A new canal entrance will be constructed 35 metres approximately east of the existing entrance. A new footbridge will also be constructed over this new entrance to maintain the continuity of the towpath.
