Navigation Closure

An inspection of the damaged brickwork at Lock 26 has identified the extent of the planned repairs will be much less than originally anticipated.  The duration of the closure at Locks 25 and 26 has therefore been reduced to five weeks.  Please note the new end date for this stoppage. 

This amendment has freed up some resource which will be diverted to Lock 43 to enable the work there also to be completed in a shorter period.


Lock 25 - Repair top and bottom gates and quoins. Improve lock ladders. 

Lock 26 - Replace the bottom gate and repair the top gate. Repair quoins, chamber brickwork and improve lock ladders.

Our Customer Service teams will be also be completing some smaller, below water, tasks on the surrounding locks that fall within this stoppage.

Following customer feedback, we have delayed the start of this closure to allow additional cruising time over the new year period.
