We came through the Chauny lock#35 (heading south), Monday, with no problems. There is work being done on the bridge immediately after the lock, so watch for the scaffolding.

Well we came through Chauny yesterday, so can confirm the Sambre route is still open. Thanks for the info.

I think that there is an Avis out for the first lock after the turning to the  Oise a la Aisne but I am fairly positive that you will get through!

We travelled from Chauny and through the Oise a la Aisne on Sunday.  No evidence of a stoppage or preparation for one.
The Navi app presents the relevant Avis on its map which is a useful way of checking.

Thanks. We believe the Sambre is open as you say but it was the last little bit where it joins the bottom of the Saint Quentin that may have the stoppage preventing access to L'Oise a L'Aisne. The VNF route planner seems to confirm this but I can't find any details.

Hi All

we have travelled down the Sambre with ease in early April, its a great route and not to be missed. Think that the St Quentin is closed until August and have heard nothing about any closures on the Sambre on the way down.  Plenty of water and very little traffic.  Great new harbour at Landrecies with new floating pontoons on both sides of the lock, they have invested a large amount of money on water tourism.

best of luck

Hi
We were going to travel the Sambre route from Belgium down into France, but we have been told there is no through route until mid August due to lock works at Chauny. I am unable to find a notice to this effect can anyone advise?

Here is the reply to my question to Clair Sénécourt, Tourism supremo in  VNF Lille:

Bonjour Monsieur Marsland, 

Je vous prie de trouver en pièce-jointe, une décision du Directeur général de VNF en date du 18 janvier 2023 concernant la modification des jours de chômages programmés pour la période du 1er janvier 2023 au 31 décembre 2023 

Certains chômages du canal de Saint Quentin sont reportés aux dates suivantes :
- Ponts canaux de Noyelles et Saint-Waast du 1er avril (*) au 15 août 2023
- Ecluse de Proville : du 05 juin au 16 juin 2023
- Ecluse de Honnecourt : du 26 juin au 03 juillet 2023 

(*) A noter que nous avons été informé aujourd’hui que le démarrage du chômage des Ponts canaux de Noyelles et Saint-Waast serait au 15/04/2023 plutôt que comme indiqué au 01/04/2023 

Je reste à votre disposition pour tout renseignement complémentaire 

Bien à vous,

Claire SénécautCheffe de la cellule aménagement-tourisme

In English:

Hello Mr Marsland,
 
Please find attached a decision of the Director General of VNF dated 18 January 2023 concerning the modification of the days of scheduled non-working for the period from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2023
 
Certain non-working days of the Saint Quentin canal are postponed to the following dates:

(*) Please note that we have been informed today that the start of the unemployment of the Noyelles and Saint-Waast canal bridges would be on 15/04/2023 rather than on 01/04/2023 as indicated
 
I remain at your disposal for any further information
 
Yours sincerely
 
Claire Sénécaut

So, it now looks as if it will be possible to navigate the canal until the 14th April 2023.

Best wishes,

Bob
