RESTRICTION (9am Monday 25 April until 4pm Wednesday 27 April 2022)

Please be advised that divers will be undertaking underwater inspections and replacing penstock equipment between Bridge 194 and Lock 7, as part of our programme to improve Kennet & Avon pumping resilience.

To ensure the divers’ safety Lock 7 will not be available for navigation in either direction whilst they are in the water, which could mean delays of up to two hours between the hours of 9am and 4pm, when the divers will be working.

Please follow any advice from local staff who will be monitoring the works site and approaches for boats and other users.
