Salterhebble Lock Nearly Ready

Normal service could soon be resumed at Salterhebble Guillotine Lock now that repairs are almost complete.

Electrical problems occurred with Salterhebble Lock in May 2008 and since then the guillotine has been manually operated by BW staff at certain times each day.

The new operating system (gear box and power transmission) has been installed and construction of the equipment platform has been completed. A period of testing now has to be carried out. Safety guards and anti-vandal measures also need to be put in place. So, for the next week, boats will be continue to be assisted by a lock keeper during the restricted hours that have been in operation:
• 9.00 am - 10.00 am daily
• 12.00 noon - 2.00 pm daily
• 4.00 pm - 6.00 pm daily
