We have updated the location information on this stoppage. The work taking place will be between locks 7 & 8 which is further south of top lock than the notice currently suggests.

As this section was planned to be closed for these works and the gate replacement at Lock 5, we hope that this change causes minimal disruption. 


A stoppage is required to carry out repairs to the lock landing and waterway wall.
