Additional and unexpected repairs to the lock chamber floor at Lock 50 have prevented access for the equipment required to carry out our planned works at Lock 49. Our Engineers have assessed the impact and, rather than causing a delay to the re-opening of the navigation, it has been agreed to defer the works at Lock 49 until next winter. The navigation at Lock 50 will be re-opened as planned on Friday, 15th March.
