We will require an additional week to complete the gate replacements and repairs at Stanton Lock.

Weather conditions have hampered work and we have also identified additional repairs which will be carried out whilst the canal is dewatered.

We expect to complete these works by 19th February.

A stoppage is required to carry out the replacement of the top and bottom gates.
