Contractors are on site and are hoping that the temporary works will be completed tomorrow (Saturday 06 April).

When this testing has been carried out CRT will then be in a position to update this notice to provide opening times for possible passage through the bridge on Sunday morning.

Update on 02/04/2019:

The fabricator has not been able to confirm a completion date but we are pushing for them to be available by the end of the week.

In preparation our contractor is mobilising a team and crane ready to install the brackets.

NAVIGATION CLOSURE (2.45pm Tuesday 19 March 2019 until further notice)

Update on 29/03/2019:

A design has been prepared for temporary brackets and the fabricator has confirmed that work has been commenced. 

CRT have not yet got a confirmed delivery date from the fabricator for the temporary brackets but will update this notice on Tuesday 2nd with further details.

Update on 21/03/2019:

Contractors were on site yesterday and a crane was used to place strops between the deck and high level beams.  The bridge has been safely lowered and the deck is now lying flat across the canal on the abutments.  

A fabrication supplier is visiting today to determine the repair solution and we will issue an update to the notice when we have further information from the Contractor.

Original message:

Part of the main bridge structure has failed.

The bridge is currently out of action and the navigation is closed.

We are currently mobilising teams to rectify this problem.
