Battyeford Flood Gate repairs completed

The flood gate repairs have been completed ahead of schedule and the system is back in operation. Lets hope we don#t have to test them anytime soon :)

The C&RT Update on 27/11/2018 read:

We have been able to complete the repairs to the cill of the flood gates at Battyeford Lock earlier than originally expected. An alternative methodology for damming the lock was used which proved very successful and reduced the duration of the works. Weather conditions have also been favourable with no flood events hampering the project. We are pleased to confirm the navigation has now been re-opened.
