Tees Barrage Navigation Lift Bridge – no boat traffic to pass underneath

Starts At: Lock Lift Bridge
Ends At: Barrage Lock

Update on 17/06/2022:

The Lift Bridge and Lock are now both operational

RESTRICTION (until 6pm Wednesday 22 June 2022)

Update on 14/06/2022:

We have had delays to the ball valve testing that was to be taking place, thus extending the lift bridge closure.

It will require the bridge to be out of action and possibly the lock depending on how contractors have left the bridge and lock.

Update on 01/06/2022:

The lock is now back in operation, please contact the barrage staff to arrange passage.

Unfortunately the lift bridge is still unavailable due to ongoing maintenance works. Please contact the barrage staff to obtain an airdraught for the bridge before commencing your journey

Update on 31/05/2022:

Contractors have been able to obtain the parts that need replacing, however this will take a further 24 hours to receive them. This means the works will be extended for one more day, aiming to be completed by end of the day of Wednesday 1st June.

Update on 27/05/2022:

Contractors will be carrying out routine maintenance work to the bridge. This will involve replacing the hydraulic hoses and providing information to produce hydraulic schematics.

Boats and skippers of all crafts will not be able to pass under the lowered bridge while these works are being undertaken.

It has become apparent that the controls for the bridge are linked to the Lock too, so the isolating of the bridge which we will need to do to undertake the works, will also isolate the lock too for this period of time.

Meaning the lock is also non operational until the end of the working day of the 31.05.22

RESTRICTION (8am Friday 27 May until 9pm Tuesday 31 May 2022)

Contractors will be carrying out routine maintenance work to the bridge. This will involve replacing the hydraulic hoses and providing information to produce hydraulic schematics.

Boats and skippers of all crafts will not be able to pass under the lowered bridge while these works are being undertaken.
