The dredging team have been on site at Beal lock all week unfortunately they have been unable to remove enough of the significant amount the flood and siltation deposit for the lock to be operational, therefore navigation will have to remain closed. 

The team will be returning Tuesday 2nd April, we will update this notice when works are complete.

Due to rising river levels the dredging mobilisation at Beal lock has been delayed. Mobilisation will now commence on 21st March 2024, providing river levels have returned to normal levels.

We anticipate these works will take between 12-14 days to complete, river levels depending.

Everything that can be done to complete these works sooner and enable passage at Easter is being explored.
