Twin Sails Bridge work cancelled
9:11am Tuesday 18th September 2012 in Latest
ROADWORKS due to take place on Poole’s Twin Sails Bridge were cancelled yesterday due to staff shortages for contractors Hochtief.
The council had intended to repaint the white cycle lane lines with high friction paint to prevent bikes slipping. The works were expected to last most of the day yesterday while the traffic was controlled with stop-go boards.
The council has said the works will be rescheduled as soon as possible.
Another set of road works are also set to take place in the next couple of weeks on the bridge link road on the Hamworthy side.
Landowners Gallaghers will carry out remedial works to a defect in the road identified during routine inspections.
