Network Rail tell us that they are to remove some of the old bridges near to Castlefield Basin, Manchester in August as part of the controversial Ordsall Chord rail link. This is very near to Castlefield Basin.
The project details can be seen here, including a detailed map.
HM Coastguard, Liverpool and Cheshire Emergency services, Liverpool Pilot and the Lifeboat were all called out out on Sunday afternoon when the Royal Iris passenger ferry ran aground in the Mersey. Around 78 passengers were on board, and were safely evacuated to a nearby dock.
NABO members can now obtain a 7.5% discount on their boat insurance through specialist brokers CETA Insurance.
CETA works with a panel of insurers including Haven, Navigators & General, Towergate, AIG and Sompo Canopius, so there is a considerable breadth of options available. We cannot guarantee that every member’s requirements can be met but Council believes this arrangement with CETA provides an excellent additional benefit for NABO members and hopes it will provide a further incentive for more boat owners to join the organisation.
