In response to the recent feedback, we are looking to fast-track the introduction of a text messaging
service for the navigation community through the use of a government platform.
We are likely to only be able, at least initially, to manage the service during working hours with
anything outside of this being on a reasonable endeavours basis.
We intend to use the service for:
• Navigation closure information
• Water level management information
• Emergency and/or urgent messages
If you wish to sign-up for this service, please email with the email title as
NAVIGATION TEXT SERVICE and include your name and mobile number within the email.
We will look to start to use the service as soon as practical.
