Update on 08/07/2022:

 The lock is back open pleas proceed with care   

Update on 08/07/2022:

Our reactive team have been making good progress on bringing this lock back into use, but faced an additional task when they reached site this morning, as the offside lock gate had been vandalised.  The good news is that this has now been put back in place, and the team are working to complete the paddle repair as soon as they can, with a good chance of finishing this evening (8th July).

Update on 07/07/2022:

Our Reactive Response Team are mobilizing to install the bottom end stop planks tomorrow.

Update on 06/07/2022:

We’ve now assessed the damage, and unfortunately it’s not something we’ve been able to quickly fix.  The good news is that our reactive response team have a clear plan for repair, and are working to get this done and the locks reopen as quickly as possible.  We expect this to take a few working days, and will provide an update on the works and an expected reopening date by the morning of Friday 8th July.

For those looking to reach or leave Birmingham from the south, we recommend a route via Kingswood Junction on the North Stratford and Worcester & Birmingham Canals.

NAVIGATION CLOSURE (2pm Tuesday 5 July 2022 until further notice)

Camp Hill lock flight is closed due to a failed paddle.

Please bear with us while our teams assess the damage.
