MARINE NOTICE No. 97 of 2013
Royal Canal – Dublin
Level 1 – Binns Bridge to Russell St
Waterways Ireland wishes to advise that the above section of canal towpath on Level 1 of the Royal Canal Dublin has been closed to the public due to a wall slippage that occurred following heavy rainfall on Wednesday night.
Electrical and gas services run along the towpath so it has been closed as a precautionary measure until repairs are carried out. However, navigation will remain open as normal throughout this period.
Waterways Ireland apologises to its customers for any inconvenience caused.

ROYAL AND GRAND CANALS
AND BARROW NAVIGATION
LOW WATER LEVELS AND WEEDGROWTH
Waterways Ireland wishes to advise all masters and users of the Royal and Grand Canals and Barrow Navigation that due to the prolonged dry and warm weather, water levels have fallen in recent weeks and weedgrowth accelerated on the waterways. Masters of vessels, particularly those with deep drafts, are advised to proceed with due caution when navigating the Royal and Grand Canals and Barrow Navigation. Additional time should be factored in to complete longer journeys.
Should any further updates on specific areas be necessary, these will issue as separate notices.
