The lock Erlangen was put into operation at the beginning of the 1970s. Soon afterwards the first damages were discovered and first constructional rehabilitation measures were necessary in 1974.
Building of the replacement construction.
The new lock will be built 300m north of the existing weir and lock. The lock chamber will have the same dimensions in lenght as the old lock (190m), while the width will be enhanced by 50cm to 12.5m.
As soon as the new lock has been put into operation, the existing lock will be shut down and partially dismantled.
The project will be implemented in 8 building phases, including the dismantling of the old lock.
Since it is not possible to bypass the lock, its reconstruction is crucial for navigation along the entire Rhine-Main-Danube axis.
