The lock swing bridge has now been placed in the open position, so customers can now operate the lock as normal.

We are asking customers not to move the bridge now it is in the open position as this could damage it further. it will be chained open tomorrow whilst we wait for a permanent repair to be completed


The bridge has a fault which means it has to be manually operated by our team

We will be operating the bridge between 08:00am until 2:00pm each day, 7 days a week

we will endeavour to repair the bridge as soon as possible
