Description

Contractors (JBA Bentley) working on behalf of the Environment Agency are replacing the sluices at Stamp End.  During the works, the operation of the lock will be unaffected, however the flood warning lights at Stamp End and Brayford Pool will be set to “Navigation Flow Intermediate - Proceed with caution” as they are no longer automatically activated from the EA Water Level System. The Trust will manually control the lights to “navigation flow high – Do Not Proceed” on receipt of information from the EA during the works. This information will only be available during office hours and may lag actual navigation flow conditions, extra care should be taken at all times before proceeding. If in doubt do not navigate, seek further advice.
