The navigation closure will now include Lock 16, Harris Lock, where emergency works are required to carry out sealing of leaks and ground stabilisation.

The works will not take as long as originally anticipated and will be completed by Friday, 3rd February.  However, the canal will be closed to navigation between Locks 15 and 16 during this period.
