Description

Contractors (Opus International) are carrying out bridge inspection works under the Railway Bridge. The canal will be restricted at this location due to the use of a scaffold mounted floating pontoon. 

All boat traffic should slow down, approach the bridge with caution and be prepared to stop if requested.  Short delays up to 10/15 minutes may be necessary for contractors to move the floating pontoon.
