Activities at the station will commence at a reduced pace initially while site measurements are taken, to enable off-site manufacture of the new gates. Activity will then pick up in November as the new gates are installed.

One of the five gates being replaced will be a fish friendly gate to allow easier passage through them for aquatic life.
