Planned Stoppages


NAVIGATION CLOSURE (Sunday 1 November 2020 until 1 April 2021)

Our Winter Works Programme for 2020/2021 is a major investment in
many structures along the River Nene, 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.
