The missing number

Published: Thursday, 01 December 2022

INSTEAD of regular stoppage notices concerning Anderton Boat Lift they can now be assessed by a number.

LiftRamsSmallSo tells the latest stoppage notice referring to the lift being closed until around Easter, boaters being informed that to keep our communication clear and easy to find, all updates will now be issued on a single notice, Keith Gudgin reports.

This goes on to state this number can be found in the web address bar at the top of the screen.  But alas, there is no number anywhere, just the information that no further updates will be issued to this notice.

Make any sense?

Keith asks if we can make any sense out of this. The answer is a definite—no!

The stoppage is required to carry out the changing of the seals on both of the main hydraulic rams with other maintenance that will extend the life of the rams. Temporary works currently being undertaken mean that the lift will be out of action until Easter.
