Repairs to Bard Avenue Bridge have been completed and the canal is now open to navigation.

Inspections at Bard Avenue Bridge have confirmed the gearing mechanism has failed resulting in the bridge being closed to navigation.

Our Maintenance and Engineering team are currently working to repair the mechanism and is it anticipated that work will continue into and through tomorrow, therefore navigation and sea-to-sea transits will be closed at this location. The canal will remain open at other locations along the Forth & Clyde Canal.

This page will be updated with further information as it becomes available. You can also follow us on Twitter @ScottishCanals for updates.
