CaRT admits to lack of stoppage notice

Published: Wednesday, 23 January 2019

CANAL & River Trust has admitted that one of the stoppages at least was not publicised.

The closure of the North Stratford Canal closure at Lock 8 was not shown as a stoppage, even though out of use for a while, with the excuse being 'because there is an easy identifiable alternative route nearby the stoppage wasn’t put on Waterscape by the local team', Keith Gudgin reports.

Work will be undertaken

It seems it was just a blocked bottom gate paddle chamber, but we are told work will be undertaken to access the paddle chamber from below to remove the blockage.
