There's a video showing the restored lock in operation at www.linkedin.com/company/est-ouvrages/videos/

A few other possibly interesting projects shown on the Est-Ouvrages website

As Sharon's subsequent post shows that date of Jly 1 should be May 3. The canal is now open with lock 21 Neuville Day being operated manually by a VNF agent for the time being.

I have moved this to its own topic as it has nothing to do with Vadencourt and it deserves its own space.

Amazingly, I still had the Avis, which I am attaching. Two concern the re-opening of lock 21, which will be on manual control for a period of time, and navigation on the entire Ardennes. The third one talks about getting and turning in telecommands at lock 27 Rilly sur Aisne, modifies the size of boats between locks 26 and 27 to 4.85 wide and 1.6m deep, gives a number to call, 03 24 71 44 11, and gives the hours for this location as 3May to September, 9-18 and 1 October to 31 December 9-17.

I also received 4-5 days ago a general "Avis" (which I subscribe to for the north, east and Ile de France waterways, more or less) confirming that the Ardennes will fully re-open Jly 1 with the opening of the lock 21 at Neuville. There was another Avis that referenced some notification requirements for another lock. I will see if I still have them, but I probably don't.
