Oil Pollution Incident – Lock 1E to Lock 8E
Starts At: Lock 1 East, Stanley Dawson Lock
Ends At: Lock 8 East, Roller Lock
Update on 14/01/2021:
The navigation is still closed from Lock 1E to Lock 8E.
The majority of the oil spill has been soaked up by the booms that we have put in place. The absorbent pads were changed before Christmas and we hope the remaining oil with be soaked up by the fresh pads.
The team are closely monitoring the oil spill and once satisfied that the oil spill has been completely removed/soaked up then the navigation will be able to reopen.
We will update this notice when we receive further information.
