TOPIC: River Yonne closed at Villeneuve-sur-Yonne

We passed through the Villeneuve-sur-Yonne lock a couple of weeks ago, nice shinny new lock gates, everything looking good and working I fine.

Ian,

I am guessing you clicked on the link to the Avis à la batellerie FR/2019/03702 in Roger Olver's post as putting that reference into the Avis search brings up nothing.

Villeneuve-sur-Yonne was due to have newly made lock gate installed last December. I'm fairly sure you will not have a problem navigating the Yonne in April. To put your mind at rest you could always call one of the telephone numbers at the bottom of that Avis.

Cheers,

Bob

I am planning a trip from Migennes to Paris in April 2020. I note that notice FR/2019/03702 appears to be still current for the closure of the lock on the Yonne.
However, looking at the Carte des chomages 2020 2ndEd there appears to be no notices of works. I hope I'm reading the VNF documents correctly. On top of this I seem to be getting some hearsay reports that some hotel boats are currently moving down the Yonne from Auxerre to Paris. Does anybody have any knowledge as to the lock availability and the the usage of the Yonne in the coming months?

PK 50,515 out of use until further notice. First indications are a lengthy repair time, bottom gates have failed and require replacing.
