Our Winter Works Programme for 2020/2021 is a major investment in
many structures along the River Great Ouse, which will deliver
significant and long-term benefits to the navigation. However, in
order to deliver this, the closure of some locks will be longer than
usual and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Subject to weather and river conditions we aim that the river will be
fully open for navigation by Easter 2021.
