Problems have been encountered due to flooding at Lock 63, causing additional water to run over the by-weir whilst carrying out repairs. 

Unfortunately, this has resulted in a delay in completing our works. 

We will do everything we can to re-open the navigation by 12th March 2021.


Carry out repairs to the bywash channel bed.
