This Stoppage has been extended. Unfortunately we have had to extend this Stoppage due to the severe weather conditions making it unsafe to remove the scaffolding and dams from the Lock. If the weather allows, the Stoppage will now be lifted on 23/02/2022. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
These essential planned works are required to significantly prevent leakage which causes water resource issues on the Rochdale flight.
