Our engineers have reviewed the results of last week’s survey at Saltersford Lock on the Weaver Navigation. Further investigations are necessary to determine the extent of the voiding which may not be visible at present following the recent flooding on the Weaver Navigation. Our team will then need to make sure the lock can be safely operated before we are able to reopen navigation.

Navigation will remain closed whilst investigations are ongoing and an update will be provided by Friday 15 November 2019.

Due to a void which has been found behind the tail gates preventing the operation of Saltersford lock, the dive survey has been cancelled and navigation is closed through Saltersford Lock until our engineers can inspect the lock.

An update will be provided once our engineers have assessed what works are required. We anticipate the lock will be closed for 1 week, however an update will be provided no later than Friday 1 November.


Please be advised navigation will be closed for 4 hours, on the morning of Monday 28 October at Saltersford Lock on the Weaver Navigation to be able to carry out a dive survey.
