Nether lock – until further notice

Notice Alert

River Trent
Location: Nether Lock
Starts At: Lock 14, Newark Nether Lock
Ends At: Lock 14, Newark Nether Lock

Wednesday 15 July 2020 until further notice

Type: Navigation Closure
Reason: Maintenance

Update on 16/07/2020:

Nether Lock is now operational again.  However, due to continued problems with lock gate 4 paddle jamming, our maintenance team have had no choice but to isolate this paddle.

Boaters can still operate the lock, but may experience some delays and are asked to proceed with caution.

Our maintenance team will continue to carry out works to Nether lock, and we hope to have it fully operational as soon as possible.



Original message:

Following on from the recent closure, some final essential maintenance works are needed to be completed at Nether Lock.

This will mean a short closure for two days while these final works are carried out.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate our customers’ continued patience at this time.

Please follow the government advice – stay alert, control the virus, save lives.
