Please note the change in date of these works.


Contractors (HOCHTIEF UK Construction) are constructing a new bridge across the river. Activities include removal of permanent formwork which requires navigation traffic to be guided in a safe passage under the bridge. A safety boat will be on site to assist when these works are happening for any boats approaching the structure. Signage is displayed on the banks both upstream and downstream warning boats to slow down and abide to any instructions the Contractor may have.

Delays will be no longer than 15 minutes
at any time.
