The Isle of Wight Council have announced that the Cowes Floating Bridge will be out of service for 5 hours tomorrow (Thursday) as part of the continuing efforts to improve the operation of the vessel.
The Floating Bridge will be halted from 12 noon until 17:00 to enable Wight Shipyard to undertake trials to inform further improvements to the operation of the vessel.
The trials will focus on maintaining a minimum water depth over the vessel’s chains at all states of the tide.
A replacement foot passenger launch will be in operation during this period.
