The Floating Bridge will remain out of service until next Tuesday.

The scheduled maintenance works are now complete and it was due to return to service tomorrow (Friday).

Whilst undergoing tests prior to returning to service, an intermittent fault with the prow hydraulics was identified. Maintenance contractors will be working on this, and in the interests of the safety of users and staff the vessel will remain out of service with an expected return to service at 0500am, Tuesday 28th July.

The launch service for foot passengers will continue to operate from 0500-2300 (0630-2300 Sundays.)
