Update correct as of 21/10/2020:
The works for the Boston Barrier project are still on-going. This project is being carried out by contractors on behalf of the Environment Agency and is located on the River Witham, near Boston Lock.
Boaters are advised that routine testing of the Boston Barrier is scheduled to be carried out. This will mean that the Barrier will be in the raised CLOSED position between the stated times on the following dates:
23rd October. 15:40-21:40
24th October. 16:40-22:40
25th October. 1715-23:15
This is approximately three hours either side of Low Water on the PM tide. The riverside Barrier information boards will indicate to boaters that the barrier has been closed.
