Continued rain raises canal restrictions

British Waterways is starting to relaxing locking restrictions on several lines. First off - and just in time for the Crick Boat Show - is a reopening of the Leicester Line of the Grand Union. Waterscape has just announced this:

Restriction: Grand Union Leicester Line Kibworth Top Lock 18 - Kings Lock 38 - 

UPDATE (09 May 2012): Due to improved reservoir holdings we are lifting the closure currently in place on this section of the Grand Union Leicester Line.

From Friday 11th May 2012 this section will be open daily between 9.00am - 4.00pm until further notice.

Locks 18,30 & 38 will be padlocked to ensure there are no abuses/unnecessary water losses. We will continue to monitor the reservoir situation closely and if we get further improvements we may lift the overnight locking altogether.
