Environment Agency Surrey Thames lock repairs brought forward

Work to repair a lock on the River Thames in Surrey will begin a year early after efficiency savings were made, the Environment Agency has said.

Repairs to Molesey Lock will see the lock chamber refurbished between January and March next year.

The work is taking place as part of a £2.75m scheme to maintain 12 Thames locks from September to March.

In Surrey, Sunbury New Lock will close from 21 January to 15 February. Molesey will close from 7 January to 8 March.

The Environment Agency said work on Molesey Lock had been brought forward by a year after funding became available.
