ADVICE (Thursday 3 September until Wednesday 30 September 2020)

We have recently experienced some near-miss situations involving boaters and Leicester Rowing Club.
We ask our users of the waterway to be mindful of Leicester Rowing Clubs canoes and kayaks, which use this section of the navigation.
We advise all vessels to please keep to the starboard (right) side of the water and use the starboard (right) arch of the bridge in the direction in which they are travelling.

Please stay within the speed limit.
