RESTRICTION (8.30-11am Tuesday 16 November 2021)

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

A diver will be in the water at the bridge site noted, undertaking an inspection of the underwater structure.

To ensure the safety of the diver in the water the bridge will need to be isolated and fixed in the road open position.

This will mean the navigation will be closed during the dive task which will take around 1.5 hrs to complete.

Support staff will monitor the works site and the bridge approaches for boats and other users, & signage will be placed to both bridge approaches.
