NAVIGATION CLOSURE (8am Tuesday 1 March until 4pm Thursday 31 March 2022)

This stoppage is not currently going ahead as planned due to a delay in the manufacture of the gates.  We are exploring all possible delivery options to try and complete this stoppage with minimal customer impact. We are hoping to start on site in early March and a further update will be issued once we have  precise dates for this stoppage.

Original message:

A stoppage is required to replace the top & bottom gates.
