Victoria and Roosky Locks
Intended closure for works
Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners of vessels that Roosky Lock on the Shannon Navigation will be closed to boat traffic from Mon 14th November until Fri 16th December. Victoria Lock, Meelick will be closed from Mon 21st November until Fri 16th December.
The locks will be closed to facilitate preliminary investigations and allow detailed measurements to be taken to enable the procurement manufacture of replacement lock gates for both upper and lower gates at Roosky and the lower gates at Victoria Lock. Any essential maintenance identified in the process will be addressed in order to maintain the lock operational until the major element of inserting the new gates takes place in the autumn of 2017.
Waterways Ireland regrets any inconvenience that this may cause and thanks its customers for their cooperation in this matter.
