Did anyone receive information about the emergency month long stoppage at Barbridge junction effective from today?
Last time I came through there was really heavy oil pollution for about two miles between Calveley and Hurleston junction.
Was there also something issued about the adaptation to Stanthorne Lock gates? It now takes about half an hour to descend as for some reason bolts have been fixed to both bottom backplates (sorry, don't know the technical term) limiting the rise of each paddle to about 5 notches. As there is a major leak on the top gate it feels like it will never empty. Fair enough at this time of year but if this is a long term thing the queues on this busy stretch will be beyond belief.

There is subsidence around the Barbridge Sluice and this needs to be urgently investigated. A dam will be placed in the canal at the sluice and the washwalls and pipes will be inspected and repaired. Further works may be needed to the sluice next winter depending on the results of the investigation.

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
