You should be able to get from Marple Aqueduct to Ducie Street Junction
in 7 to 8 hours, depending on how many crew you have for operating the
Ashton Locks (i.e. less time if you have someone ahead setting locks).
The Rochdale Nine could take 2 to 3 hours, depending on how many crew.
With two doing locks (and BW helping down the Nine) we managed
Portland Basin to The Barge at Monton (over the Barton Swing Aqueduct)
in a not-too-rushed day of 14 1/2 miles and 27 locks.

... I'm not saying it's a bad idea, just that, in this case at least, i can't see any problem with releasing them in the same, or some arbitrary other, order. ... But at the very least, it could cause performance issues, where multiple threads using the same set of locks wind up tricking each other into becoming runnable only to hit another lock they can't acquire. ... This would be especially true if there are delays between the releases, but even without, depending on the exact scheduling of each thread it could still happen. ... Of course, if one is using the "synchronized" statement, that obviously would implicitly order the releases reverse from the acquires. ...
