River Thames locks get £2.9M refurbishment

The Environment Agency will spend £2.9M over the next few months on refurbishing and repairing 12 locks on the River Thames.

The money will be spent between August 2011 and March 2012 on lock gate refurbishments and structural repairs at 12 lock sites, as part of the Environment Agency’s Waterways Investment Programme.

Environment Agency engineer for the River Thames Paul Power said: “The Environment Agency has more than 2000 assets along the River Thames which we maintain and keep to good and safe working order.”

Out of the 12 locks, nine will be affected by temporary closures, with work scheduled to take place during various periods between November 2011 and March 2012.
