There are more ships on the Manchester Ship Canal than at any time in the past. Canal shipping is on the increase and bridge closures are becoming more and more frequent. Ships are now sailing through Warrington during rush hour having a major impact on the lives of drivers.
If you knew the bridge was going to be off you could change your plans and avoid waiting. You could start your journey earlier, stop for a break or leave your journey til later.
Your time is precious. Get notified of Swing Bridge closures up to half an hour before the bridges are off with Swing Bridge Alerts. Download today!
