Is the Anderton Boat Lift open or closed

Published: Friday, 03 May 2019

ANOTHER of those Canal & River Trust stoppage notice 'Cartisms' leaves boaters in a quandary.

It was reported on Sunday that the Anderton Boat Lift was' currently closed for passage', Keith Gudgin reports.

Restricted passage

Yet at the same time it was told that 'the lift will be 'operating restricted passage'!

Further information is that only one of the lifts is working though the cause of the failure is not told, only that it is the usual 'operational issues' but it can only take a limited number of boats, which possibly means it is only half open—neither open or closed!

As Victor would comment—make of that what you will!
