This topic is more appropriate to the Stoppages, Hazards and Levels section so I will move it there.

When the original post says the the link between Paris and Auxerre is broken, indeed it is, but it does not mean the whole navigation is closed, those wishing to navigate up to Migennes and onto the Canal de Bourgogne will still be able to do so for instance.

The Info' below was received from Chaînette ten minutes ago, lock Néron is downstream of Gurgy and therefore it will be possible to navigate that far, but not to Auxerre until next season now. I'm in Paris and was hoping to head up to Auxerre at the weekend, looks like I will have change of scenery this year :I Translated by google which sometimes has the habit of Americanizing abbreviated dates ie 10/11/2020 becomes 11/10/2020

From La Chaînenette to Villeneuve-sur-Yonne,

1. navigation will switch to limited mode from 11/10/2020 until 25/10/2020.

This mode results in a grouping of boats and a mooring limitation of around 1.50m.

2. then the navigation will be closed from 26/10/2020 to 29/11/2020

3. after this date, it will be possible to navigate on demand, upon announcement and with support. From Néron to Villeneuve for now and then further upstream to Auxerre, when the decision will be validated by the board of directors.

From Etigny to Cannes-Ecluse,

1. navigation will be closed from 24/10/2020 to 08/11/2020.


Regarding the Boisseaux lock, the damage is serious and we cannot resume until next season.

The anchors of the upstream gate were torn off, the civil engineering was affected.

Here is Google Chrome's English translation for those members who don't use the facility that browser possesses:

We inform you that the Boisseaux lock in the town of MONETEAU has a structural defect no longer allowing the upstream right door to be opened and leading to its closure until further notice.
The Auxerre - Migennes / Paris link is therefore closed.
We will naturally keep you informed at each stage of progress.
We apologise for the inconvenience,


I don't understand why they should say, or imply, the whole link is closed when l'écluse de Boisseaux (N0.4) is only 5.5km downstream of Auxerre. There are impending chômages, however as shown here:



Cheers,

Bob

I have just received the message below:

Nous vous informons que l’écluse des Boisseaux sur la commune de MONETEAU présente un défaut de structure ne permettant plus d’ouvrir la porte amont droite et conduisant à sa fermeture jusqu’à nouvel ordre.
La liaison Auxerre – Migennes /Paris est donc fermée.
Nous vous tiendrons naturellement informé à chaque étape d’avancement.
Veuillez nous excuser pour la gêne occasionnée,
