All day Sunday 26th September to 5.30am on Monday 27th September 2021 the towpath will be closed between Somerset Road and Westgate. A diversion will be in place via Farquhar Road and Vincent Drive. This is to facilitate work on the new University station. The tow path may also be closed for the same times the following week, though this is not entirely clear from the information provided.
And yes, that is a really old picture of the tow path at University station, but I don't have a newer one that I can find.
