A bodge gets the Anderton Lift working one morning a week!

THOUGH the Anderton Lift has been repaired it is somewhat of a bodge.

For it only allows the lift to be operated one morning a week, Keith Gudgin reports.

AndertonPumpHouse'Successful repair'

For this, the trust tells it is pleased to advise its mechanical and electrical engineers have carried out a successful repair to the flood damaged components on Anderton Boat Lift, and that a completed satisfactory testing has been carried out of the lift over the weekend.

So from tomorrow, Wednesday, the pump will operate one morning a week but for essential travel purposes only, with the first passage at 10am.


If you need an essential passage bookings can be made by calling the North West Customer Support Team on 03030 404040 (Monday to Thursday 8:30am to 5pm, Friday 8:30am to 4.30pm).
