The bridge on 23 December.

The Cowes-East Cowes floating bridge will be out of service on Tuesday (21) next week.

The Isle of Wight Council says it will not operate due to ‘further repairs’.

Work is being carried out on the vessel’s south-east hinges – and to replace a number of guide wheels.

A replacement launch service for foot passengers will be in operation between 5am and 11pm.
