The Cowes Floating Bridge is back in service this morning (Monday).

Suspended over the weekend due to safety concerns about the prow cable, according to the live feed on the Floating Bridge Website, passengers are being accepted on to the Bridge this morning.

On Friday night the Isle of Wight council had said,

“A temporary launch service will operate until engineers have inspected the vessel on Monday and any repairs are carried out.”
