Although the majority of works have been completed at Newark Town Lock, we are experiencing difficulties with our supply chain with regard to the refurbishment of the mechanical equipment that is used to open and close the gates.
As such, a restriction on boat movements will be needed between the 14th and 24th December i.e. following on directly from the end of the published stoppage.
On these days, boats will be able to travel through the lock between 9am and 3pm only.
During these hours, the lock will be operated by our staff on site.
Boaters may experience delays of up to 45 minutes whilst the lock is set.
Please follow advice given from our staff on site.
