We are sorry to advise that this stoppage is being deferred from this year’s winter works programme.  Unfortunately, upon further investigation, the scale of repair work needed is more than originally planned, we are unable to deliver these works within the dates permitted. The decision has been made to defer these works into a future winter programme.  Again, we are sorry for this change and apologise for causing any inconvenience to our boating customers.


A stoppage is required to carry a complete rebuild of the bridge and deck.
