Shireoaks Top Lock (42) and Shireoaks Middle Lock (43) – October 10th to 14th
May Gurney on behalf of British Waterways will be partially dewatering the canal pound between Locks 42 and 43 (Shireoaks Top Lock and Shireoaks Middle Lock).
This essential work will enable grouting to be carried out, stopping leakage through the lock structure from causing damage and saving precious water
Turnerwood Double Bottom Lock (34), Quarry Lock (35) and Turnerwood Top Lock (36) – October 12th to 14th
British Waterways will be partially dewatering the canal pounds between Locks 34, 35 and 36 for three days. This should enable investigation of the ground paddle chamber to determine the extent of pressure grouting requirements. This investigation is required prior to a major works scheme at this site during 2012.
