Stoppages & Restrictions

Lock 4, Saltford Lock

Update on 14/06/2021:

Please be advised that due to delays caused today by third parties our mobilisation has been delayed as we now have to find another suitable cranage site and larger crane in order to lift the plant and equipment required for the works into the waterway.

It is anticipated that works will be completed by 12:00 on Monday 21st June.

We understand that this may cause frustration and we are working hard to ensure our waterway opens as soon as possible.

Update on 07/06/2021:

Please be advised that our engineers have been to site today to assess the extent of the damage.

We are currently mobilising plant and equipment to facilitate a repair of the damage which will be starting on site Thursday 10th June.

It is anticipated that the works will be completed by 16:00 on Tuesday 15th June.

We will update should there be any further developments.
