27.04.18 – NAVIGATION RESTRICTION – Weir Works at Thames Lock

The Environment Agency and their contractors have started the planned works to Hamm Oil Mills Weir just above Thames Lock. The works include a temporary pontoon that has reduced the width of the river at this location and it will not be possible to wind a boat while it is in place.

Passage past the Weir is unaffected, although boaters are advised to proceed with caution.
