Tees Barrage

Post by SteveJ » Fri Jul 22, 2011 7:37 pm

Don't know if this subjects been done to death yet. I've had a search on the forum but can't find everything. But the question is when is the Teesside white water course reopenning? Went to the tadpole tonight for a meal and had a quick look. The plastic blocks that where stacked on the side last May don't seem to have moved.

As I put on the previously mentioned thread:
Hi, the bottom of the course has been emptied by British Waterways to remove the penstock gates so they can be repaired and then reinstalled. Installation is currently scheduled around the 24th August. Once this has been completed we hope to have a definite date for opening. Fingers crossed it won’t be long.
