Thurgoland – Northern Powergrid are carrying out works to the overhead power lines in the Thurgoland area. Vegetation works will commence this week and works to masts week commencing the 9th September. The TPT will remain open throughout the works with Banksmen on site

Grange Lane – Works are taking place this week on the TPT between Grange Lane, Cundy Cross north to Burton Road, Monk Bretton.  Amey staff are cutting back trees below the power lines, so there will be noise from Chainsaws/Chippers and vehicles on the verges of the Trail. The TPT is still open and warning signs should be displayed in the specific area they are working


Between East Coast Road and Stevenson Road (5WW) – This section will be closed until the end of February. A diversion will be in place.


Leeds – Royal Armouries to Fishpond Lock – Work will be starting week commencing 3rd February to resurface this section of the Trans Pennine Trail / National Cycle Network.  The attached map indicates the diversion for the duration of works.  The programme will commence at Fishpond Lock.  During this initial phase banksmen will be in operation but there may be times when users will have to use either the south bank or the old railway line – contractors will do all they can to minimise disruption. The attached diversion will be in place for the further phases of resurfacing works.

Prep works for the sections either side of Skelton Grange Bridge have been progressing and the section from Skelton Grange Bridge to Thwaite Lane is being surfaced next week and should be complete and reopened by the end of Wednesday.

The towpath from Skelton Grange Bridge to Skelton Lake is now completely closed and will remain closed until the works are completed towards the end of March.
