We have been monitoring the steps at Prince Charles Aqueduct as they have been deteriorating, and recently identified them as needing work done due to rotting timbers. In line with our published Asset Management Strategy, we have made the decision to close access to the steps due to the risk to public safety.
Whilst the repairs to the steps are not high priority, and due to constraints on budget, we are looking to secure the funds and resources to effect a safe repair in the long term.
Please follow the diversion in place.
