CRT has informed boaters that the stoppage at Seend, where the waterway has been closed since 22nd November 2015 to repair Seend Wharf Bridge, will not re-open until 23rd March, 12 days longer than planned. The road will not open until 6th May.
CRT announced today (27th October) that the Caen Hill flight will be open while CRT repair the towpath between locks 48 and 49 but lock 50 will be padlocked at 4pm each day until repairs are complete to prevent further vandalism.
Boaters met with Mark Stephens, the K and A Manager, a few months ago and discussed many issues about facilities and maintenance. There is now a phone number to report breakages and other problems with water taps, sanitary facilities, rubbish bins etc. The number is 01380 722859.
