Although this stoppage was originally planned to
finish on the 26th February following a vehicle impact to Dimmingsdale Bridge, urgent
works are now needed to make the site safe and so we have taken the decision to
move our resources from this project. This will therefore have a knock on
effect of delaying completion of these works until the 3rd March. We
apologise for the short notice of this change

The floating plant on this stoppage is needed at Dimmingsdale Bridge; which has recently been struck by a vehicle and requires emergency repairs
