Update on 22/06/2022:

We are pleased to advise our teams have completed further works to resume wide beam access through Lock 60, Boarshaw Lock on the Rochdale Canal.

Whilst completing a repair today, our team found additional issues which require further planning and our teams are now working together to organise a method of repair.

Please be advised, whilst we await the manufacture of the new parts in order to repair the broken paddle at Lock 60 Boarshaw on the Rochdale Canal, navigation is restricted to narrowboat access only.

Wide beam access will not be possible due to a bottom gate paddle remaining out of operation following the temporary repair.

A further update will be provided Wednesday 22 June.
