Navigation update from the BCA
There are currently about 10 navigation and towpath blockages. Most of the trees are down between Queens Ave bridge Aldershot and Eelmoor bridge. There are also trees down near Blacksmiths bridge in Hampshire and also upstream of Reading Rd bridge in Fleet and downstream of Ash Wharf. The team are out now clearing the towpath as a priority, however it is likely to be at least the rest of the week to get all these cleared as we are also trying to juggle finishing off winter works in Deepcut.
