Project Inner Lock Gates
Location King George Dock, Hull
Value £330,000

The impressive lock gates at King George Dock Hull required the anchorage system to be replaced. The original system had been built at the beginning of the 20th Century, and following problems with one of the restraints ABP decided that remedial work to both top gate anchorages needed to be carried out as a priority. It was essential that during the refurbishment works, the lock gates remained operational.

Extensive temporary works were required to ensure that the gates remained operational for shipping in and out of the inner harbour. This entailed excavation of the existing dock walls and installation of permanent reinforced concrete pits and anchorages. A temporary steel anchor beam was then installed to remove the loads from the existing anchorages to enable them to be replaced.
