NAVIGATION CLOSURE (8am Monday 4 April until 4pm Monday 23 May 2022)

Update on 11/03/2022:

We have reviewed our delivery options for this stoppage. Due to the requirement of one of our crane boats that is currently already on a stoppage, the start date for this stoppage is now early April. We have explored the use of a land crane to help with lifting the gates and dams but due to site restrictions this is not possible and we need to utilise the crane boat. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Update on 04/01/2022:

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.
