Dear all,

* Captains: If your club is currently allowing single scullers or doubles out, please pass this message on to them. *

To install the new jetty under the railway bridge and lift the new Chisholm Trail bridge into place, there will be two-three weeks of river closures, starting next Monday 20th July, and many of these will be full river closures.

The full schedule is outlined here: https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/UKGCP/bulletins/2959e8d

The River Manager has kindly provided some additional details:

• The river will definitely be open at weekends
• The towpath will be open throughout, so you can climb out and walk your boat past the full river closure if you’d like to go out during them.
• The daytime closures are from 8am to 6pm.
• Outside the daytime closures, the river may still be obstructed so much that it’d be difficult to fit a single past (the pontoon is 3m wider than the one they used for the piling). You could still walk your boat around if this is the case.

Best wishes,
