Canal Closure Update From Canal & River Trust

This update from CRT yesterday – hopefully open this afternoon:-

Initial investigations are now complete, and a plan of repair has been organised for Lock 2, Audlem on the Shropshire Union Canal.

Our contractors have attended site today to measure up and prepare a design to fabricate a free-floating scaffold to assist with the lifting of the cill buffer from within the chamber. Works are currently continuing off site to fabricate the scaffold and our teams will be back onsite tomorrow from 6.30am to undertake the lift and re-secure the cill buffer. Once this is complete, our teams will demobilise site and navigation can resume.

We anticipate the repair will be complete tomorrow and an update will be provided tomorrow afternoon
