EA have advised that works at Blakes and Bell Weir locks will not now start until 13 November. Completion dates are unchanged and river currently remains open for passage.
The delayed closure of Molesey Lock means there will only be a 23 day window between Bell Weir re-opening on 15 December and Molesey closing on 8 January – see timeline :
We have been advised by the EA that, due to operational and resource issues, winter works at Molesey Lock, originally slated for 30th October to 8th January will now start on 8th January 2018 and finish on 23rd March.
