Trouble-hit Salterhebble Guillotine Lock on the Calder and Hebble Navigation is again creating potential delays for boaters, with restricted operating hours introduced once again.
Due to a breakdown of the electrical mechanism, the guillotine gate will have to be operated manually by British Waterways staff until specialist repairs can be carried out. BW is hoping that the engineers will be on site with the necessary parts on Thursday 13th May.
Until repairs are complete, the Guillotine Lock will be operated by BW staff during the following periods only:
• 9.00 am - 10.00 am daily
• 12.00 noon - 2.00 pm daily
• 4.00 pm - 6.00 pm daily
Electrical problems occurred with Salterhebble Lock in May 2008 and had to be manually operated by BW staff at certain times each day for around a year.
Any enquiries regarding this stoppage should be made to BW on 01782 785703.
