UPDATE ON 01/03/2023:

We would like to advise our customers that works have progressed well at Locks 9 & 11. The navigation will now be open from 4pm on Thursday 2 March 2023

UPDATE ON 14/12/2022:

We are sorry to advise that due to a delay in the lock gate production for this stoppage, a 2-week extension is required.

The delay with the lock gate production is due to essential repairs being carried out at our Bradley workshop during Autumn. This meant that the workshop was closed for several months. Due to unforeseen challenges with weather, this has meant that the workshop was closed for 4 weeks longer than anticipated. Despite our best efforts, this has caused a delay in gate production.

The stoppage will now end on 10/03/2023. We hope that this change doesn't cause any inconvenience.


A stoppage is required to carry out the following: Lock 9 — Gate repairs and repairs to the weir crest. Lock 11 — Replacement of the top gate, repairs to the bottom gates and installation of new stop plank grooves.
