The works being carried out by the EA, have had to be extended for a further two weeks.
The extension is required due to unforeseen difficulties with the works and late design changes required.
They aim to be finished by the 2nd March.
Due to the unexpected high water levels, this restriction has been delayed and will now commence on the 12th February.
Contractors Amco for EA will be carrying out minor repairs to the flood gates next to the lock using roped access techniques. They will be able to move out of the way for any oncoming boat traffic.
Please slow down when approaching the bridge and be prepared to stop whilst contractors move out of the way. Delays may occur but will be less than 20 minutes.
