Work starts to re­fur­bish sluice

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

WORK has started on the re­fur­bish­ment of the Whit­tle­sey Dog in a Dou­blet sluice. The struc­ture, which was built in 1937, forms the up­stream limit of the tidal de­fences for the River Nene and con­trols up­stream river lev­els. Re­pair work will now be done by the En­vi­ron­ment Agency on the north sluice so it re­mains in good work­ing or­der for years to come. It is ex­pected the lock will be closed to nav­i­ga­tion for just over a week in Oc­to­ber to al­low for the re­place­ment of the elec­tri­cal op­er­at­ing sys­tem. The works are ex­pected to be com­pleted in Jan­uary 2011.
