MARINE NOTICE, No 145 of 2016
Ferns Lock to Clondra
Navigation Level and Proposed Dredging
Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and vessel owners that from 1st November 2016 it cannot guarantee full navigation level on the Royal Canal Rural from Ferns Lock (Lock 17) to Clondra due to low rainfall levels.
Also it is proposed to dredge a section of the 17th level and now requests boat owners to move their boats off this level as soon as possible so that work may commence.
This work is expected to last until mid-Mar 2017.
Waterways Ireland regrets any inconvenience that this may cause its customers.
Charles Lawn, Inspector of Navigation, 25 Oct 2016
