The Linssen fleet passed The Thames Barrier. This barrier is a movable flood barrier in the River Thames east of Central London.

It has been operational since 1984 and prevents the floodplain of all but the easternmost boroughs of Greater London from being flooded by exceptionally high tides and storm surges moving up from the North Sea. When needed, it is closed (raised) during high tide; at low tide it can be opened to restore the river's flow towards the sea. Built approximately 3 km due east of the Isle of Dogs, its northern bank is in Silvertown in the London Borough of Newham and its southern bank is in the New Charlton area of the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

The report of Sir Hermann Bondi on the North Sea flood of 1953 affecting parts of the Thames Estuary and parts of London was instrumental in the building of the barrier.

Youre are near by St. Kathrins Docks. Hope you ´ll come in quickly. We have had a nice time there two years ago.

Wir glauben Ihr habt die Erlaubnis von London VIT das Sperrwerk zu durchfahren.
