We need to extend this stoppage by a week. Unfortunately the site has suffered from some vandalism which caused flooding, also the storms caused the need for the fabric dams to be reset. We apologise for any inconvenience this extension may cause.


A stoppage is required in order to carry out masonry repairs to the upstream landing approach wall.
