Customers are asked to only move if essential to reach services and to follow government guidance at all times


As a result of damage caused by Storm Ciara, Figure of Three locks will be closed for the foreseeable future.

Our teams are working to fully assess the damage caused and design a programme of works to bring the locks back into operation.

Our initial estimates are this may take up to a period of 12 months. We will provide further updates as our programme of works becomes clearer.
