ADVICE (8am Monday 2 November until 6pm Friday 18 December 2020)

Please be advised that we will be dredging in Gloucester Docks and on the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal from Llanthony Bridge to Monk Meadow, between the above dates.

This will involve a work boat towing a plough as well as suction plant on a mobile floating pontoon, which will be connected to the dry dock via floating pipework.

The Canal will remain open, but it’s likely that delays of up to an hour could be experienced while the pipework and plant are cleared from the channel, to allow vessels to pass safely.

It will help to minimise delays if all vessels would contact Gloucester Lock on 01452 310832 in advance of their transit.

Please follow any advice from contractors and dredging crew and pass the works with extreme caution, when indicated safe to do so. Please contact us at  if you would like to discuss this information.
