Hopes for Aire & Calder re-opening this month

Published: Wednesday, 04 August 2021

THERE are hopes that the Aire & Calder Navigation will open later this month.

Work to extract the cofferdam piles at the breach by the New Junction Canal will start on the 5th August but will require a reduction in water level from the breach to Goole Docks and all connecting marinas, Keith Gudgin reports.

Below normal level

This reduction in water level will commence today, Wednesday and extend until the 18th August. During this period water level may be up to 8 inches below normal level.

Skippers of all craft are advised to check mooring lines and allow for a 200mm reduction in water level
