MARINE NOTICE, No 09 of 2018

Grand Canal Leistner Aqueduct

NAVIGATION CLOSURE

Waterways Ireland wishes to notify owners and Masters of vessels that the Grand Canal will be closed to navigation at the Leinster Aqueduct, West of Sallins, from mid February to mid March to facilitate bank strengthening.

Water levels will also be reduced along all of Level 15 on the Grand Canal, including in Sallins. Masters are advised to tend their mooring lines accordingly to accommodate any fluctuations in water levels.

Waterways Ireland regrets any inconvenience the above will cause to its customers.

Shane Anderson, Assistant Inspector of Navigation, 15 Feb 2018

The Leinster Aqueduct (1783) takes the canal over the Liffey. Climb down to the Liffey level and walk along the path beside the river, to really appreciate this piece of engineering. The Liffey rises 24 km from Dublin however, it meanders for 147 km before reaching Dublin and at this point, it is flowing north. There is a pumping station here that takes the water from the river to the canal. "Click picture to IWAI Webseite Kildare"

LEINSTER AQUEDUCT – NAVIGATIONSSCHLIEßUNG

Waterways Ireland möchte Schiffseigner und Kapitänen von Schiffen darüber informieren, dass der Canal Grande von Mitte Februar bis Mitte März für die Schifffahrt im Leinster Aquädukt, westlich von Sallins, gesperrt wird, um die Stärkung der Ufer zu ermöglichen.
Die Wasserstände werden auch entlang der gesamten Stufe 15 des Canal Grande, einschließlich in Sallins, gesenkt. Den Kapitänen wird empfohlen, ihre Festmacherleinen entsprechend zu richten, um etwaigen Schwankungen des Wasserspiegels Rechnung zu tragen.
