The Port of London Authority (PLA) To Launch Thames Safety Films

Issue date: 14th November 2011

In a drive to highlight the challenges faced by recreational river users on Britain’s busiest inland waterway, the port authority has commissioned three films which follow boaters as they tackle the Thames safely.
 
One, covering Southend to Crayfordness, highlights the protocols and regulations around navigating in the estuary and in close vicinity to large ocean-going ships. A second deals with getting through the Thames Barrier. And a third will show how to follow the rowing code between Putney and Richmond.
