17.10.2023 POSTPONING OF THAMES LOCK FOOTBRIDGE REPLACEMENT UNTIL JANUARY 2025

Dear Boaters

We have made the decision to postpone the replacement of Thames Lock Footbridge until Jan 2025.  This means that the advertised 10-week closure has been cancelled.  My sincere apologies for the disruption this will have caused.  Due to tight timeframes and additional measures requested by stakeholders, we were no longer in the position where we felt confident that we would be able to stick the to the 10-week programme and ran the risk of impacting the Easter weekend. 

We will keep you updated as the project progresses and the maintenance team will be conducting regular assessments of the bridge to ensure its continued safety over the course of the next 12months.

Kind regards

Tristan Brown(He/Him)

General Manager
