Over the weekend, Coxhead's Swing Bridge (bridge 20), between Haskayne and Lydiate, caused problems for boaters, who needed assistance from British Waterways. BW engineers have examined the bridge and found that there is damage to the barrier and gear box. This makes the bridge impossible for boaters to operate.
Until repairs can be completed, BW staff will offer assisted passage through Coxhead's Swing Bridge (bridge 20). Until further notice, the bridge will only be opened at 9.00 am and 3.00 pm.
Boaters wishing to pass through this bridge are asked by BW to ensure that they are at the bridge promptly at those times.
Any enquiries about this stoppage should be made to BW on 01942405700.
