Wightlink will be carrying out essential maintenance work at its berth at Fishbourne port from Monday 29th March to Friday 14th May 2021.
Aging fenders will be replaced with new ones in four weeks of overnight work, scheduled to take place when tides permit.
Wightlink Chief Executive Keith Greenfield says,
“Our contractors will do their best to keep disturbance to a minimum but unfortunately, there may be some noise.
“We apologise in advance if this causes any inconvenience to our neighbours in Fishbourne.”
Contractors will be based on a barge offshore during the operation. The replacement work will be suspended if winds rise over 25 knots.
