Over the winter of 2017/18, Essex & Suffolk Water, in partnership with Essex Waterways, will be replacing the sea lock gate and central timber mitre gates at Heybridge Basin in Essex. The project will involve the closing and draining of the lock in October 2017, crane lifting operations for the gates and the assembly and testing of the new gates prior to the re-opening of the lock in March 2018. There will be disruption in the area during this work period but we will endeavour to keep this to an absolute minimum.

Start Date

September, 2016

Estimated End Date

March, 2018

Update by amanda hunt

Afternoon Heybridge,

Just a quick note from me, Amanda Hunt (Essex and Suffolk Water Customer Care Manager) to say a huge thank you to those of you who were able to pop along and meet us in The Jolly Sailor on Monday. It was a great opportunity for our project team to meet the residents and I really enjoyed gaining some local knowledge of the area.

As Adrian mentions we will keep you informed on progress on a weekly basis so watch this space !

You can use the 'Contact us' button at the top of this page and when you see members of the team around please come and say Hello, they will be only too happy to answer any questions you may have.
