Havengore Bridge Improvement: Work suspended (31.03.20)

We regret to announce that as a result of Government advice and directives in response to the Covid-19 outbreak, our contractor has been forced to suspend the refurbishment work on Havengore Bridge.

Significant progress has been made and the works were on schedule to be completed by early April. Both of the new hydraulic cylinders have been installed, the associated hydraulics are well under way and most of the electrical and controls upgrade has been completed.

When the project resumes, our contractor estimates that a further 10-14 days will be needed to complete all work and to commission and test the bridge. We will maintain a regular assessment of advice being issued and work will recommence when Government guidelines allow, and when the local facilities needed to support the contractors are available.

We will publish a date for recommencement of work and a revised completion date when that information becomes available.

Therefore unsponsored, recreational visitors will not be permitted entry via Landwick Gate on those days.
