Further key works to help remedy noise and vibration issues with Cowes Floating Bridge are being undertaken this month.
Earlier this week composite mesh matting was fixed on the Cowes concrete slipway before the installation of a ‘shoe’ follows next week.
Both the matting and the shoe – a device covering the end of the ramp to provide a flat landing point with the Cowes slipway – aim to reduce noise and vibration levels.
Isle of Wight Council leader Councillor Dave Stewart said the works are part of the pledge to improve the service in all areas…
“We remain determined to make the necessary improvements to the floating bridge and these latest projects demonstrate our ongoing commitment.
“We recognise its importance to the communities of Cowes and East Cowes and this work is the next stage of our plan.”
The ‘shoe’ is due to be fitted later this month.
