Following thorough investigations and meetings with third parties, careful planning of the complex works to remove the obstruction, including works to install new bank protection, between Lock 8 and Lock 9 on the Ribble Link are underway.

We are pleased to advise our contractors will start works in March next year.

Subject to weather and tides, works are being planned to finish before the start of the 2021 cruising season, restoring wide beam access on the Ribble Link.

The passage schedule for the Ribble Link 2021 season will be published and available to book later this year.
