Floating bridge expected to return to service next week


The Cowes to East Cowes Floating Bridge will be out of service until early next week. This is to enable necessary repairs to the prow and hinge assembly.

It is anticipated that the repairs will be completed with the bridge returning to full service early next week.

In the meantime, a replacement foot passenger launch is in place, operating a shuttle service between 5am and 11pm each day, until repairs to the prow have been completed.

Reminders and updates regarding the work will be shared on the council’s social media pages (Facebook: @isleofwightcouncil and Twitter: @iwight) and the dedicated floating bridge website at: https://www.iwfloatingbridge.co.uk/
