Although the work in the locks is complete, with the weather issues this week and time lost due to a police incident, we can see that the work to remove the dam, scaffolding and other equipment is going to carry over into the weekend.

 We’re sorry if this causes inconvenience but want to assure people that we are working as hard as we can to clear the site and reopen the canal.

 We’ll provide a further update on the likely reopening time as soon as we can.
