Barnes Bridge Arch closure

23rd August 2021

Sorry for the delay in communicating with you regarding the Barnes Bridge arch closure. I have had to wait for clarification about closure timings.

The arch will be closed from the 24 August as per the Notice to Mariners U5of 2021

The PLA have agreed with the navigation plans as shown in the below. Please use extreme caution when navigating through the central arch, whatever direction you are travelling in.

Although the NTM U5 states the arch will be closed for 4 months, this is total time expected for the works to be carried out in. The PLA working with the contractors, will reopen the arch during construction whenever possible. The three phases of construction when the arch need to be closed are as follows;

  1. Construction of a coffer dam using sheet piling. Time, approximately one month. Once the coffer dam is built the plan is for the arch to reopen while work is done behind the coffer dam
  2. Installation of the bridge
  3. Removal of the coffer dam

I will be in contact with the PLA to make sure the arch is open as much as possible and will communicate with clubs as soon as I have any further information.
