We sincerely apologise for the lateness of this update notice, however, unfortunately we are unable to mobilise our contractors to all 4 of the Llangollen bridge wet abutment repairs before Christmas. To avoid falling behind with our planned repairs on the Llangollen bridges, which are subject to a rolling programme of underwater brickwork repairs, we now intend to undertake 2 of the repairs in January 2017. To mitigate the disruption caused by this change as far as possible, we have agreed to delay the start of the Beeston Lock closure until the completion of the Llangollen Bridge repairs to keep more of the network open. We have also instructed our contractor to work 7 days per week on the works in January.
Full dewater and water transfer across bridge holes for brickwork repairs.
