I've noticed that the number of Mariners Notices has massively decreased this year.

To the casual observer it looks like the BA are doing nothing on the rivers, while I know that is not true, don't you think that triver users need to know what is going on more frequently?

I recently went to Reedham to watch the YNR. I went by car as I had no idea what the situation was about the work being done on the quay.

This could be easily fixed by a part time information gatherer, will the BA do this?

Add To Ignore List
A notice to mariners (NTM) advises mariners of important matters affecting navigational safety, including new hydrographic information, changes in channels, closures and restrictions to the river, aids to navigation, and other important data within our area of jurisdiction.  The notices are a requirement and are published in the Public Notices section of the local press and on our website.  We therefore only use these to provide information when necessary and provide general information through our blog, website, press releases, and social media like Facebook and Twitter.

So, in effect there is no standard strategy to get information out to boaters about what is happening on a daily basis?

Today I received, and posted a NTM on Cockshoot Dyke. Yet there are none about the works at Reedham or Great Yarmouth.

I did suggest an information gatherer, and information dispersal. If it was in a unified place, such as this forum, the other feeds that you mention could then disperse the information from one central source. Including River Control.

All it would take would me, or someone from the Forum, to call everyday and find out what's going on.

And it wouldn't cost anything!
