Ipswich Lock Closure - updated
Mariners are advised that Ipswich Lock will be closed for essential maintenance from 06:00 Monday 1st November 2021 until 18:00 Sunday 14th November 2021.
During these works we are unable to continue normal locking in and out activities. Transit through the lock may be possible during free flow (shortly before high water). Vessels intending to transit during free flow are requested to give 24 hours advance notice. In addition, please be aware that an additional pontoon will be located on the west wall to enable maintenance – this will restrict the width available and the beam of vessels which can safely transit the lock.
If the works are completed earlier than expected, then the lock will be re-opened to normal operation as soon as possible.
Please contact Orwell Navigation Service, callsign ‘Ipswich Port Radio’ on VHF 68 or 01473 213526 for the latest information and advice.
