STOPPAGE ALERTS AND NOTICES TRANSFERRING TO WWW.CANALRIVERTRUST.ORG.UK

The alerts the Canal & River Trust provides for boaters about waterway closures and stoppages will be available on the charity’s website from the week commencing 9 December 2013.

The new alerts will be easier to use and will provide clearer information for boaters:

  • Stoppages and notices will appear on interactive maps and will be fully integrated;
  • More information on the type of notice, for example whether it’s a sporting event or a closure due to maintenance;
  • Clearer canal and river listings, with all parts of the waterway grouped together.

Boaters will be able to search for stoppages on the Trust’s website from the week commencing 9 December.  They can also find out about stoppages by looking at the interactive ‘In Your Area’ maps on the website.

The Trust is emailing all those boaters who receive alerts to tell them about the changes and let them know what they need to do.

Waterscape alerts will stop being emailed out during the week commencing 9 December and boaters visiting the page will be redirected to the Trust’s website.

Simon Salem, marketing director at Canal & River Trust, said:  “The stoppage alerts and notices are now fully integrated onto our website and I hope they provide a clear and easy-to-use resource to any boater planning a trip.  They appear on our interactive maps and are a very visual way to see what’s happening where, as well as providing even more information than before.  I urge all boaters who currently receive stoppage alerts to sign up at www.canalrivertrust.org.uk to ensure they are kept up-to-date with anything that may affect their cruising.”

Boaters who currently get stoppage alerts by email will need to re-register on the Trust’s website to continue to receive the updates, because their accounts are protected by encrypted passwords that cannot be transferred over.  If they already have a MyTrust account they will simply need to sign in.
