Our contractors, AMCO, are carrying out work to replace the life expired control equipment at Lock 8, Holme Lock. 

Modifications required to the original design have, unfortunately, meant a delay on the timing of the works.  However, the majority of this can now be done under restriction.  Please see our restriction notice: https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notices/16960-lock-8-holme-lock

AMCO will still require a short stoppage during the project and this has been programmed for 9th to 13th March. 

We apologise for any inconvenience resulting from this change of dates.
