Bridge 36, Midgham Road Bridge

RESTRICTION (11am-2pm Tuesday 16 November 2021)

Please be advised that in line with the Trust’s inspection procedures, inspections are to be undertaken to assess the underwater condition of bridge structures.

A diver will be in the water at the bridge sites noted carrying out an inspection of the underwater structure.

Support staff will monitor the works site and the bridge approaches for boats and other users.

Signage will be placed to both bridge approaches warning of the works ahead.

Support staff and equipment will be located close to the bridge site.

At the sites, boaters observing the signs and the dive support staff at the bridge will naturally slow down, but they will also be kindly asked to wait for up to 20 minutes whilst the diver either completes the inspection or safely moves clear of the bridge.
