Lock Closures and General Hazards

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners of vessels that all locks on the Lower Bann are inoperable due to high water levels following recent heavy rainfall with the exception of The Cutts.

  • – Reduced air-draft at bridges
  • – Increased flow rates
  • – Difficulties discerning the navigation channel
  • – Submerged obstacles including navigation markers
  • – Submerged jetties

Waterways Ireland thanks its customers for their cooperation in this matter.
