Stoppages & Restrictions

Update on 29/04/2021:

The diving team will be in attendance tomorrow to remove the faulted paddle to allow our local team to fabricate a new one. We are hoping that we can undertake this onsite and that the new paddle will be installed the same day. We will provide a further update during the course of the works. Thank you for your continued understanding of this emergency repair.

NAVIGATION CLOSURE (4.15pm Tuesday 27 April 2021 until further notice)

Unfortunately we have just discovered that the offside ground head paddle at Lock 9 on the Huddersfield Broad has failed. The team onsite are undertaking an emergency repair to seal the paddle chamber closed to prevent the stretch of navigation from Lock 9 on the Huddersfield Broad to Lock 1E on the Huddersfield Narrow from draining. In doing so this means that Lock 9 is now non operational and the navigation from Lock 9 upstream to Bridge 17 Loco Liftbridge is closed.
Due to access limitations we require a diving team to replace the paddle and this is currently being organised. Once the repair date is confirmed, this notice will be updated accordingly.
