The gate replacements and repairs have been completed at Lock 6. 

Unfortunately, however, due to Covid within the team, there has been a delay in the removal of the dams, crane and other de-mobilisation of the site. 

We hope to re-open the navigation by 4pm on Thursday 25th February. 

Thank you for your patience.

Unfortunately we will require an additional week to complete the works at Lock 6 as progress has been severely hampered by high water levels and flooding on site. 

We will do everything we can to complete the works by Friday 19th February.
