RESTRICTION (9am-1pm Tuesday 22 March 2022)

The navigation and towpath will remain open. Inspection will be undertaken to assess the underwater condition of bridge structures. A floating platform will be on the water to support the Dive team and the diver will be in the water Bridge 61A, undertaking an inspection of the underwater structure. For safety, there will be a floating barrier placed across the water to both bridge approaches. Signage will also be placed to the approaches, warning of the works ahead. Support staff and equipment will be located close to the bridge site. 

We kindly remind boating customers to observe signage and slow down when approaching the floating platform and the barriers at the bridge. Please be prepared to wait for up to 30 minutes whilst the Diver either completes the inspection, or safely moves clear of the bridge. Please take extra care when passing through this area.
