The issue has been resolved.

The width restrictions are lifted.

Passage is now possible.


The dredging works have been completed but an issue has arose with the top lock gates.

The width of the lock has been reduced by the top lock gates which are unable to open fully.

We have a lock restriction to 12ft passage on top gates.

We will update this notice when further information is received.
