L&L STOPPAGE STOPPED
A planned stoppage for work on a railway bridge over the Leeds & Liverpool Canal at Accrington, which (combined with a closure on the Bridgewater) would have isolated the western Leeds & Liverpool from November to February, has been postponed by Network Rail. The only all-winter stoppages without Christmas openings on the CRT network are now on the Kennet & Avon (see p6) and Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal. See
