January Port Solent Lock Shutdown


Port Solent Marina would like to make berth holders aware of a lock shut down from 08:00 Monday 6th January to 08:00 Monday 20th January 2020.

The lock will shut to allow the marina to carry out essential maintenance including replacing the lock gimbals on the lock rams along with any pre-emptive maintenance required to ensure that the lock will be in good working order for the new season. The shutdown is scheduled to take place across two weeks but will be dependent on weather conditions, as some of the works require the use of a crane.

Throughout the shutdown, there will be no access through the lock, and the outer waiting pontoon will not be available.

Berth holders planning to use their boats during the shutdown period can, if a berth is available, be accommodated at our Gosport or Southsea Marinas. Please let the Port Solent Marina team know as soon as possible if you would like your berth to be relocated temporarily.

Thank you for your understanding whilst we carry out these important works.
