Just goes to show that the Forum and Newsletter are more accurate than PCN.;) ;)
And before the canal does open, the lock at Hensies from the Belgian end used to be a delightful open country stop. But I guess could be full of construction stuff now.

Ian's post, which is the origin of this topic, is about the reopening of the Canal Pommeroeul-Conde, not about PC-Navigo. As such, it well deserves its own topic to spread the good news.

I repeat, this topic is nothing whatsoever to do with PC-Navigo. Please contact me by PM to discuss further rather than here, if you want to.

Moderators - PLEASE if you are wanting to split a post to create a fresh thread, either first contact the poster to ask how this should be done, or do it in such a way that the new abridged post makes sense.

The part-sentence quoted above makes no sense, as it no longer relates to why and how this waterway is shown as non-navigable according to PC Navigo.

Yes, this may deserve a fresh thread (though I don’t think so), but if deemed worthwhile, the new thread should have as Subject “Canal Pommeroul-Condé on PC Navigo”, the text should state that this is a Moderator-initiated thread and it should quote from my original posting all that is necessary to explain the problem that may result when this waterway is eventually re-opened as a through route.

Please revise the initial thread posting so this is made clear. Many thanks

Peter

> the Canal de Conde-Pommeroeul is scheduled for reopening in the near future, 2022.

Yes, I'd read that too. Perhaps when a more definite date for re-opening is published, this will be picked up by Navigo and a Patch released to allow users to see these 2 dead-ends re-joined. Judging by their apparent lack of forward thinking over the Oise/Meuse, my guess is they'll need prompting by a DBA member nearer the time!

(certainly in 2021) as mentioned elsewhere and covered in the last DBA newsletter, the Canal de Conde-Pommeroeul is scheduled for reopening in the near future, 2022.
