Four ecluses on the Upper Seine will be closed for maintenance and repair between 28th August and 29th September 2013.


  • Coudray – PK130
  • Vives Eaux – PK116
  • La Cave – PK101
  • Varennes – PK71

This work will affect routes to or from the Mediterranean through Paris. It will close through navigation on the ‘Bourbonnais’ route south from Paris through the Loire valley.
It will be necessary to use the ‘Champagne’ route instead.
Access between the upper River Yonne via the Haute Seine and the Canal de Loing will also be affected.
