Aire and Calder Locks Stoppage


Birkwood Lock and Kings Road Lock on the Aire and Calder Navigation will be closed to navigation on Tuesday 17th September between 8.00 am and 5.30 pm.

Northern Powergrid will be switching off the power to these locks in order to carry out maintenance of the equipment at the local substation. Passage through the two locks will not be possible during this time as they are controlled from powered consoles.

Birkwood Lock and Kings Road Lock are on the branch of the Aire and Calder Navigation between Castleford and Wakefield.
