Where the main railway line from Birmingham to the South West crosses the Stroudwater Canal the canal is blocked except for a small culvert and a pedestrian tunnel. It will be a major undertaking to replace the culvert with a passage through for the canal.

Currently a there is a complete block of the Stroudwater Navigation at the divide between Phase 1A and 1B.
