Yes, that is what the notice said. We haven't heard anymore since.

Do we know where in Namur the stoppage starts? Will we still be able to navigate between the Sambre and the Meuse going downstream towards the Netherlands? I assume so, but confirmation appreciated.

Thanks

Peter

Dutch Barges are only built in the Netherlands. Anywhere else is something else.

Our rivets are real not fake!

The notice we saw and discussed with the Captaine at Beez, says total interruption of navigation. The Captaine told us that to be sure we should be through Namur before 21st September.

I feel sure the river won't be completely closed to navigation for 3 weeks - at least I hope not.





Planned works can often mean very short duration closures over a several week period, such as when the railway bridge over the Meuse at Namur was replaced with a new one in 2011. A massive crane barge was stationed in the river but, except when sections were actually being lifted, a through passage was maintained. It showed on PC Navigo as a closure.





Do we know what these planned works are?
