NAVIGATION CLOSURE (8am Monday 18 January until 4pm Friday 12 February 2021)

Update on 22/12/2020:

Unfortunately, our programme has been affected due to some of our construction team having to self-isolate.  As a result, we will not be able to complete all the pre-Christmas preparation for the stoppage at Lock 15, including moving plant and equipment to site.

We therefore need to delay the navigation closure by one week.  This will now start on 18th January 2021 and re-open on 12th February 2021.

Original message:

A stoppage is required to enable the replacement of the top gate.
