UPDATE V High Water

The high water situation on the Rhine has now worsened again, with levels tending to rise. The Maxau gauge (762 cm at present) is still up to High Water Mark II. Consequently the closure of the Rhine still remains in place.

At present the closure cannot be expected to be lifted before Friday/Saturday, 24/25.06.2016.

Germersheim is still accessible to our fleet travelling upstream. In Speyer there is still no shipping ban in force.

Unfortunately the stretch of the Rhine from Iffezheim to Basel is still closed, as the locks are being kept closed due to the high water. Regrettably an improvement in the situation is still not foreseeable here at present.
