The repairs to the lock gate and cill at Lock 3 were completed successfully and on time. 

Unfortunately there is now a residual problem of a build up of excess silt around Lock 4 which has resulted in the navigation having to remain closed. 

The silt is currently being tested for contamination and disposal options are being urgently investigated.  The navigation will be re-opened by 16th March.  

We will do everything we can to reduce this timescale and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
