On-going repair works at Euston’s Lock 15 could mean that it won't be open to river traffic until mid-February.

The Lock has been out of action since Wednesday January 11 with maintenance works continuing to repair an issue with a gate.

Originally the repair work was only set to take a week, but, now is likely to be over a month.

Water New South Wales say they are working to fix the issue as quickly as possible as they know it's a busy time on the river.

Employment Lawyer, Henry Pill, says that in some cases faking it has resulted in termination.


Experts are hoping Sunraysia orchardists, winemakers and farmer register their properties for a unique eight-digit Identification Code.

Properties signed up to the Property Identification Code system will be notified if biosecurity events, or, emerging threats such as pest infestations and disease outbreaks could soon hit their properties.

Chief Veterinary Officer, Charles Milne, says that it is already a legal obligation in the wine and livestock industry.
