The works will now commence on the 29th of March due to delays in mobilising the pontoon.


Contractors will be undertaking bank slippage repairs on the bank of the River Don on the other side of the island, on behalf of the Environment Agency.

Narrowboats and small vessels will be able to pass through next to the pontoon on the east side of the navigation.

Any larger vessels should contact Liam Gallagher from BAM Nuttall on 07776 680412 as far in advance as possible to discuss the possibility of navigating past the works.
