The cause of the severe leakage on the lock gates at Lock 7 could not be determined without de-watering. Once de-watered it was apparent the condition of the lock floor was very good but the cills required replacing. As a result, the work was not as extensive as originally anticipated. In addition, the unusual good weather has accelerated the wall repairs. The navigation is now open.
Description:

Carry out repairs to the approach wall and lock gates at Lock 7.

Repairs at Lock 10 have been deferred which has allowed the start date of this closure to be put back until 4th February 2019.
