News from the Plymouth Barbican
Statement from the Sutton Harbour Holdings 10th May 2017
Sutton Harbour footbridge:
Investigations into the mechanical fault affecting the Sutton Harbour pedestrian footbridge are continuing.
Engineers form Environment Agency, who are providing support to Sutton Harbour Holdings, are awaiting specialist piece of equipment to carry out further testing on the bridge turntable assembly and determine the exact cause of the fault.
Pete Bromley, Harbour Master of Sutton Harbour, said:
“We regret that the lock bridge will remain closed to the public whilst these tests are being carried out; this is necessary to ensure the harbour lock gates can remain fully operational to marine traffic, and provide management of any flood risk.”
We hope to have a further update next week, and apologies for any inconvenience caused by this closure.
The footbridge will be closed for the Plymouth Pirate Weekend. Visitors planning to get to National Marine Aquarium and Rockfish from the Barbican are encouraged to use the Harbour Heritage Trail, as marked in blue on the attached map. We will be posting any updates as they appear via our Facebook and Twitter.
