Lock 11 at Mildura Weir reopens

Monday 13 August, 2018

Lock 11 at Mildura Weir has been reopened following completion of preventative maintenance works in July and August.

The lock was closed in late July to allow Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) to inspect gates three and four, after urgent repairs to gate two in March identified the need for further preventative maintenance.

GMW has now completed the maintenance and has informed local houseboat operators of the re-opening.

GMW Head of Bulkwater Operations Martina Cusack said the maintenance works went well and thanked the community and houseboat operators for their patience.

“This preventative maintenance will allow Lock 11 to operate smoothly well into the future,” she said.
