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

All boat traffic should slowdown, approach the bridge with care and be prepared to stop if requested.  

Short delays up to 10/15 minutes may be necessary for contractors to move the floating pontoon.
