Putney Slipway timetable
5th January 2017
I have received the following information regarding barge movements at Putney during the construction of the slipway. Please make sure that rowing boats do not get in the way of these barges.
Newtons Laws of Motion and the accompanying concepts of momentum should be enough to realise the barge is not going to be affected by a collision.
The following barge movements are timetabled for the forthcoming weeks whilst the new slipway is constructed.
Friday 6th January 2017 - 06:00
First barge movement, this is for taking spoil away.
Monday 9th January 2017
Second barge movement, again for taking spoil away.
Tuesday 10th January 2017
Third barge movement, this will be bringing some building aggregates to site and for taking the final spoil away.
Wednesday 11th January 2017
The first building blocks for the new slipway will be delivered by barge. Thereafter this date, there will be one to two barge movements per week, until the construction works are completed on the new Putney Slipway (mid/late March).
It should be noted, that Wandsworth Council have granted TTT permission to deliver and remove barges from site 24hrs per day, so that they can utilise the tides efficiently. Therefore I would suspect all barge movements will be at similar timings as tomorrow's movement - i.e. approximate 1hr 30mins to 1hr before High Water at Putney.
