The lock gates on Lock 5, Walsall are being replaced and brickwork repairs undertaken. This is part of the planned summer stoppage programme across the West Midlands.
Due to the volume of work required across the waterway, we have identified several projects that are to be undertaken in the summer rather than the traditional winter period. They have been selected due to the fact that they all have suitable diversion routes which will minimise the impact on our customers.
The diversion route is via Rushall Canal and the Wyrley & Essington Canal.
