Chiswick Bridge works #3
3rd November 2014
The attached (pdf) is the proposed navigation during the closure of the central (No. 2) arch from Monday 3rd November. It is important that all crews follow this navigation guidance. The important detail is that during times when both the Middlesex (No. 3) and Surrey (No. 1) arches are passible crews will not have to contact Chiswick Bridge Control. It therefore makes sense that crews and coaches try to plan their outings accordingly.
This exception to NTM U25 of 2014 has been made after consultation between the TRRC and the PLA. It is up to all of us to make sure we make this exception works. I would ask all clubs to take special care when navigating Chiswick Bridge. Please make sure that your crews are courteous to any PLA personal who will be controlling navigation through the Bridge and follow any directions given by them.
If while navigating Chiswick Bridge during the next few weeks you have any doubts about how to navigate please ask the personal on the Duty Boat (Chiswick Bridge Control) using VHF CH 14, telephone 07711640057, or if you're in a launch by going up alongside.
