Killaloe Canal To Be Closed For Essential Maintenance Works

#InlandWaters - Masters and owners of vessels on the Killaloe Canal are advised that the section between Killaloe road bridge and the control gate structure upstream will be closed for six weeks from later this month. 

The 450m long section the waterway will be closed to navigation between Monday 14 May and Saturday 30 June to allow lowering of the water level in the canal for essential maintenance works.

Waterways Ireland advises that all vessels should be removed on or before Monday 14 May.

In other inland waterways news, work continues on installing floating pontoons and a gangway at Regal Pass on the Erne system, with a view to completion this coming Friday 4 May.

The 20 metres of jetty next to the activity hub is reserves to allow access of the floating pontoons and barges, so mooring is not permitted at this location for the time being.

Meanwhile, on the Lower Bann, essential maintenance works at Porta Locks were completed last week and the navigation is now open and operational.
