Please be aware that Phase 1 of the works have been delayed by one week due to difficulties sealing the stop logs with the tail gates quoins.

The revised program is to now complete phase 1 of the works by Wednesday 27th of April allowing two days for lock passage.  

The locks will then be closed on Friday 29th April for a three week period to finalise the works. We are consulting with customers directly affected by the revised program and will keep them updated on progress.
