Presumably not till the dodgy bits have been removed for restoration.
How much river traffic would there normally be that far upriver?


A significant number of pleasure craft (some of whom have been stranded
away from their regular moorings), as well as the boat race (and
practising for it).


I was thinking about the various "bin-liner" type movement of rubbish
from the west side of London to the recycling depots to the east. Quite
a lot of that moves by river these days.
