Bank works and temporary barrage at Barbel Bar

As the title says...

Bank works to reinforce the south side of the River Kennet just above the weir apron at Barbel Bar present no problems for paddlers, but whilst the currently high flow rates are nearly washing out the weir, they're also making a mess of the somewhat amateurish barrage.

Paddlers should be careful to avoid the poorly identified rope line strung from the weir railings, but river left may be the best bet.  Hopefully the works will be completed soon, but in the meantime, paddle safely!
