MARINE NOTICE, No 18 of 2016
Lock 2 Ballyconnell
Intended closure for works
Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners of vessels that Lock 2 Ballyconnell on the Shannon-Erne Waterway will be closed to boat traffic from Monday 14th March 2016 until Friday 25th March 2016, weather permitting.
The lock will remain closed over this period to facilitate the re-alignment of the navigation channel adjacent to the fixed landing jetty on the lower level. This remedial work is as a result of the flood levels experienced at this location over the winter period.
Waterways Ireland regrets any inconvenience that this may cause and thanks its customers for their cooperation in this matter.
Further information may be had by contacting Waterways Ireland’s Carrick-on-Shannon office at 07196-50562.
C.J.Lawn, Inspector of Navigation, 14 March 2016
