TOPIC: Sambre Closure until 25 September

Sambre Closure until 25 September 23 Sep 2017 10:55 #95190

Peter, very crowded at Namur casino but may be cruiser fingers available over at port or rafting here. Jambes is presumably now closed as it is on the stretch above Namur in the avis.
We plan to leave on Tuesday and assume re-opening of Sambre is on schedule for Monday.

Any further news on the Sambre closure? Also I guess there are lots of boats at Namur waiting for the opportunity to leave for the Charleroi-Brussels canal - is there still plenty of mooring space at Jambes marina or on the wall by the Casino? I plan to be there on Monday afternoon.

Thanks

Peter

Thanks Chris and Pete for correcting my daft error. It may have caused more upset than the water authority notice had it remained in error!

Pete moderator beat me to it as I was about to point out 25 Sept not October. Namur getting full.

Sorry big mistake - its 25 September not October. If a moderator can edit the posting that would be much appreciated. Peter

The google map can't be displayed, ask your administrator for more details


Chris Grant recently posted a closure notice stating that The Sambre will be closed just downstream of Charleroi until 6 am on 25 September for repairs to 2 locks. This wil hold me up and probably many other members.

If anyone hears up-to-date news about re-openting this waterway (you never know they may finish earlier) please post here.

I guess there'll be a backlog of commercials wanting to move on so I plan to get there for 26 October afternoon.

Thanks
