Forton Lake Millennium Bridge update
Repairs are continuing on the bridge.
Our specialist contractors have stripped down the lifting mechanism and have discovered that the likely cause of the failure is an issue with the pair of motors that power the system.
Brakes will need replacing and one of the motors needs to be checked for damage.
We need to see the results of this work before knowing when the lifting mechanism will be operational again.
In the meantime we have cleaned the bridge and it has reopened for cyclists and pedestrians wishing to cross.
We apologise for the delay in restoring the lifting function of the bridge. Our contractors are working hard on these complex technical issues.
