K&A Canal central section re-opened until 9th January

The Kennet & Avon Canal central section between Locks 60 and 80 which has been closed since mid-November because of a shortage of water has re-opened temporarily to allow boat movements.

Boaters should be aware that Hungerford Marsh Lock (73) closes on the 9 January 2012 for planned winter works and travelling eastwards Monkey Marsh Lock (90) closes for scheduled works on 30 January 2012.

British Waterways will make a decision later on whether to keep the locks to the east and west of Hungerford Marsh Lock open while it is closed for maintenance.

There is no news of when Victoria Bridge on the River Avon in Bath might be re-open and make travel from Bath to Bristol possible again.
