We have been advised by the Contractors that due to adverse weather conditions which meant diving operations could not be undertaken safely, this inspection will now take place on 28 and 29 November.


Contractors (James Fisher Subsea) are carrying out bridge inspection works at Methley Bridge including access to the water to enable all elements to be inspected. The watercourse will be restricted at this location due to divers in the river. 

All boat traffic should slow down when approaching the bridge, take care when passing and abide by the contractors advice.  This may result in delays of no longer than 15-20 minutes.

For further information please call 0303 040 4040.
