The Cowes floating bridge is still out of action this morning following a problem with the ramps identified on Wednesday evening.
This morning a spokesperson for the Council told OnTheWight,
“Engineers undertook diagnostics yesterday which established an issue with the Floating Bridge ramps. Unfortunately, to resolve, this required the need for a part to be sent overnight and that this will be fitted today.
“As a consequence, the engineers were unable to work overnight. It is hopeful to return to service this afternoon.
“Updates to follow.”
A spokesperson for the Council told OnTheWight,
“New part has now been fitted to floating bridge today by engineers so it is now back in full service (3.30pm)
“Apologies for the inconvenience caused.”
