Below are photographs showing the construction of East Lock Canoe and Fish Pass. At this site, there was no room to install a combined brush furnished pass like at Eldridges Lock and Porters Lock. Instead there are three structures in one channel, a canoe slide, a fish pass and an eel pass. Works commenced on Tuesday 2nd March and were completed by 1st April 2010. Dean and Dyball were the contractors and Halcrow completed the design.
The total cost of this pass including design was £77k.
The canoe slide is a simple linear slope at an angle of 1 in 6.5 approx. The pedestrian overbridge had to be raised to give a minimum of 1.5 metres clearance underneath. Steps were added either side to reach the new bridge height.
The fish pass is a "Larinier" style pass and runs at the approximately the same slope as the canoe pass. The Elver pass is hidden under covers on the far right of the photo below.
Steps and non slip surfaces have been added for ease of maintenance.
