The lower offside gate at Holme Lock has dropped. The decision has been made by BW that it can be continued to be used with caution for the remainder of the season.
Boaters will still be able to operate the lock out of hours but caution must be taken to preserve the condition for the rest of the season. If the lock fails there could be a 4 week stoppage!!
It is proposed to schedule the works for January 2013.
