The works include bank protection, piling and abutment works for the new road bridge crossing.

The end date of this third party closure has been extended to coincide with the stoppage at Thornfield Bridge 75, Barby, and to allow contractors more time to complete their works.

Description:

The works include bank protection, piling and abutment works for the new road bridge crossing, which is planned for installation in winter 2018/19.

Following customer feedback, the dates for this third party closure have been changed to co-ordinate with other works in the area, in order to reduce the impact on navigation.
