There are 5 sluice gates on the barrage, which control the level of water in the Bay. The sluice gates are each 9 metres wide and 7.5 metres high. Over a quarter of a million litres of water per second can flow through each sluice gate.

Thanks Haggs. These controls for the sluice gates are really technical, and I agree - look quite good as well!
