Notice Details
From Date:

To Date:

Navigation Closure

Work is required at Aston Lock 4 to replace the bottom gate and repair the top gate.  This could not be completed during the winter stoppage programme due to the huge amount of other work that needed to be achieved across the area.    

Following consultation it has been agreed the Aston Lock 4 works will be carried out as a summer closure.  This means we can take advantage of better weather conditions and longer daylight hours.   There are also good alternative routes available via the Digbeth Branch and the Birmingham & Warwick Junction Canal. 

During the closure, additional work will be carried out at the lock to repair the chamber brickwork, repair copings and to improve the lock ladders.
