Canal stoppages

16-03-2012 : LEICESTER LINE, GRAND UNION CANAL

From 17th March to 1st April, as a result of the continued dry weather the reservoirs which supply the Leicester Line of the Grand Union Canal are not re filling as planned.

Therefore work needs to be undertaken to reduce water loss on the canal to prolong the 2012 cruising season.

The canal will be closed between Lock 38,Kings Lock to Lock 31, Double Rail Lock, to allow the 8 locks to be drained and have all the gates relined to reduce water leakage.

The 8 locks within this section will be drained and the water level in the adjacent pounds will also be lowered.

No Canal Boats or other craft will be permitted to moor within this length for the duration of the works.
