Winter 20/21 Lock Maintenance Programme


Over the winter, Sovereign Harbour Marina will be carrying out a programme of planned lock maintenance with projects scheduled as follows:

Starting with Lock 2 on Monday 23rd November, and continuing for a period of ten days, we will be working on the RAM bases that hold the lock hydraulics together. Once this work is completed, we will begin work on the hydraulic RAM exchange on Lock 1 - with an expected works completion date of 6th December 2020.  

On Monday 22nd February 2021 our programme of preventative maintenance will start on Lock 1 (the lock adjacent to reception). This will involve the lock being dewatered, visually inspected and routine repairs carried out to ensure the lock’s longevity and safety; we expect to complete these works within 5 weeks to arrive at a finishing date of 28th March 2021. 

As our maintenance programme alternates between the two marina locks, one lock system will always be providing service as normal - thereby minimising the risk of disruption to berth holders.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we carry out these important works. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the programme, please contact the Marina Reception on 01323 470 099 and speak to the team.
