The leak repairs required behind the byweir walls at Lock 10 were not as extensive as originally anticipated.
It is expected our construction team will complete their work ahead of schedule and the navigation will be re-opened on Friday 12th February.
Unfortunately, one of our construction team working on the stoppage at Lock 10 has tested positive for Covid-19. This means all those involved in the work on site are now isolating and will be unable to return to work until 26th January. Work on site is currently suspended.
We will do everything we possibly can to complete the repairs by 26th February, as originally planned, but will update this notice again should the situation change.
Thank you for your patience.
