Tony Haynes has (elsewhere) expressed alarm at Surrey County Council wanting to close the Deepcut Flight of locks, on the Basingstoke Canal, for "health and safety" reasons, rather than find the money to improve the state of the flight.
Tony notices that part of the current Save Our Waterways strategy is to highlight structural problems. He wonders whether this could result in further closures due to Health and Safety when funding is not there to fix the problem immediately?
Tony asks whether anyone has seen Health and Safety given as a reason for closure or unnecessary restriction on any waterway.
