Ipswich Lock Gate Latest News
Published 15:00 on 18 Nov 2020
Due to early completion of latest scheduled maintenance work, Ipswich Local Notice to Mariners 11/2020 is now withdrawn.
The Prince Phillip Lock at Ipswich will be re-open as per normal entry/exit procedures to all users commencing Wednesday 18th November 2020.
It is likely that a further maintenance period and lock closure will be required in the next few weeks to complete the final scheduled work and I will keep you all advised once this has been confirmed.
In the meantime customers may notice that at low water it takes slightly longer to lock out, this is because work on the inner lock gates and sills is not yet completed. We ask your patience in the meantime and aim to complete this work a soon as possible at the next lock closure.
