Richmond Lock and Weir
In order to carry out unexpected extra maintenance works to the weirs at Richmond Lock and Weir it will be necessary to keep the weirs open for a further period of four weeks. This will allow the river between Richmond Lock and Teddington Lock to drain down at low water on each tide.
The Draw-Off period is currently expected to complete by Monday 19th December 2011. To ensure public safety there will be no access to the footbridge across the Lock and Weir until the additional work is completed.
