Spanish term or phrase: CAMINO DE SIRGA
En Argentina es un camino que se debe obligatoriamente dejar a los propietarios de tierras que estén sobre el río, para un eventual remolque de buques que naveguen por ese río en cuestión.
Tengo entendido que los propietarios con costa al Támesis (UK) tienen una obligación semejante.

AURORA
towpath
Explanation:
While I may not become your personal hero, at least this is the term used for such a thing in the US. En cuanto a los detalles que buscas, ojalá que algún colega británico te sepa ayudar; pues aquí los ríos ni agua llevan.
