Due to Covid affecting our resources, we are going to need an additional week to complete all the activity planned at Feeder Lock, this means the new end date for this closure will be the 27th October 2023.

We do not expect this will cause any additional disruption to customers as the canal is already closed in this section due to low water levels at Harthill reservoir.

We would like to advise our customers that we are bringing this planned work forward. This work will now align with the current closure at Harthill Reservoir which will allow us to complete the essential repair works with minimal disruption to customers and have the navigation open sooner than we had intended. We plan to complete this work by the 21st October 2023.


A stoppage is required to carry out top gate balance beam and cill works, we will also be doing other repairs in the same location too.
