In order to carry out essential maintenance works on Richmond lock, weirs and sluices, it will be necessary to lift the weirs at Richmond for a period of 3 weeks. This will allow the river between Richmond Lock and Teddington Lock to drain down at low water on each tide.
The Draw-Off period will commence at approximately 06:50am on Sunday 28 October and will complete at approximately 12:30pm on Sunday 18 November, 2018.
TYC Working Parties to inspect and repair moorings are scheduled for Sundays 28 October and 11 November from 10:30am to 2:00pm on both dates. TYC Mooring users are advised to move their craft to another mooring during the draw off as it is helpful to the Working Parties if moorings are clear.
