floatingbridge400UPDATED: The Cowes Floating Bridge will be in operation for pedestrians only between 20:00 and 00:30 for a total of four nights over the next week.

On the evenings of 24th, 25th, 26th and 29th September, vehicles will not be able to gain access to the floating bridge on the Cowes side due to road resurfacing works in Medina Road. As a result, pedestrians only will be able to use the link service.

Signs have been put in place by Island Roads informing motorists of the situation. The resurfacing has been scheduled for night-time hours to minimise disruption to the service.

UPDATE THURSDAY @ 16:30 – The work, due to begin tonight, has been rescheduled according to the Isle of Wight Council and therefore a normal service will remain in operation on the Cowes Floating Bridge.
