Port of London Authority Notice - River Thames


The Port of London Authority have issued the following notice in line with current Government coronavirus guidance, placing restrictions on movement.

To reduce social contact, travel and potential strain on emergency services, we strongly
recommend that all recreation and leisure activities on the tidal Thames are avoided until
further notice.

Our priority at the PLA is to help ensure the UK continues to receive essential supplies of
food, fuel and medical goods at this time.

As a result, we expect to have a reduced capability in responding to recreational incidents on
the river.

To support our essential port operations, we are reducing the operating hours of our harbour
service patrols between Putney and Teddington. 

We are grateful for your co-operation in these exceptional circumstances.
