We have reviewed the repairs at Sawbridgeworth Lock and these will now be carried out without the need for a full stoppage.   However, the navigation will be restricted while we carry out the works and short delays may be experienced. 

Please follow instructions from our team on site and take care when passing through the lock. 

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this change may have caused.


Carry out repairs to both top and bottom gates to reduce leakage.
