Queen Mary’s characteristic view of Regent’s Canal at the Mile End campus will change over the next eight weeks while vital repairs are undertaken to the waterway walls. The canal will be closed from Monday 2 November to Monday 21 December by which time all works should be complete.
The Canal and River Trust, the organisation responsible for the maintenance and repair of the canal, will be erecting temporary fencing along the towpath of the canal later this week. The work will involve draining the canal between Old Ford Lock to the North of the Mile End campus and Johnsons Lock to the South.
It is not expected that the works will have any impact on campus.
For more information, please visit the Canal and River Trust website. If you have any questions about the canal works and would like to talk to someone, please contact the Estates Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org or call x2580.
