Description

Please be advised, an emergency closure is required at Albert Dock gate, Liverpool South Docks. During a routine operation of the gate, failure in operation of the gate occurred leaving the gate inoperable and resting on the dock bed.

Whilst plans to carry out repair works to the gate cylinders were already in our schedule, these works have now been brought forward, in addition to the recovery of the gate and the required repair works.
