TOPIC: VNF Closure of the Seine Basin immediately

VNF Closure of the Seine Basin immediately 17 Mar 2020 10:53 #114549

FWIW, The Riqueval tunnel is now closed and the Gran Gabarit looks likely to follow. Most likely all the French waterways will close for pleasure.

The section of the Canal de Saint Quentin referred to here is the southern section below the Riqueval tunnel.

One clarification - it's 'only' pleasure craft. So commercials will still be operating. From the national economic perspective, that makes the decision sustainable.
