Lifting Schedule Changes For Poole Bridge

Temporary changes to the lifting schedule for Poole Bridge will be in place from today (Monday 28 November 2011).

On weekdays (Monday to Friday) the 2.30pm and 4.30pm bridge lifts will be cancelled and replaced with a single bridge lift at 3.30pm. All other bridge lifts will remain unchanged.  

The revised schedule, to allow completion of work on the new Twin Sails Bridge, will continue until early 2012 when a new timetable will be introduced for the operation of a two bridge system.

Councillor Xena Dion, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Transportation, Borough of Poole, said: "The revised schedule will help the contractor during the final stages of construction to complete the Twin Sails Bridge. Motorists will be alerted via the variable message road signs in the area. We apologise for any inconvenience that this temporary change may cause."
