Navigation Closure
Notice updates:
28/03/2018 @ 16:10

We confirm Linton Lock will be re-opened tomorrow evening ready for the Easter weekend. 

Our teams have worked hard over the last week and weekend, in spite of some very challenging conditions, to finish installing liners in both the ground paddle culverts, grouting and removing the scaffolding and cofferdam. 

Reinstatement works will continue after Easter but will
not affect the navigation.

Unfortunately, the River Ouse is still in flood.  As a result, the planned re-lining of the ground paddle culverts at Linton Lock has had to be postponed. 

The earliest re-start date for this work, subject to improved conditions, is Monday 19th March.   It is hoped the work can be completed, site de-mobilised and the navigation re-opened by Thursday 29th March, ready for the Easter weekend.

We are sorry for this unavoidable delay and any inconvenience caused as a result.

Three separate flooding events have caused significant delays to surveys of the ground paddle culvert at Linton Lock.  The surveys are required before the re-lining of the culvert can begin. 

In addition, a gate collar needs to be repaired before the lock can be re-opened. 

As a result, the navigation will remain closed for an additional week, until 16th March, to allow time to complete all the works required.


We apologise for any inconvenience resulting from this delay.
