Summer Lifting Schedule For Poole's Bridges

The lifting schedule for Poole's bridges will change from Good Friday, 29 March 2013.

As the winter period comes to an end, Poole Bridge and Twin Sails Bridge will adopt the summer lifting schedule which will remain in use until 30 September 2013.

Councillor Xena Dion, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Transportation, Borough of Poole, said: "The lifting schedules are an important component in the operation of a two bridge system. The summer schedule has been developed following recommendations from the Bridges Operating Board and meets the needs of both the maritime community and road users."

Variable message road signs in the area will be used to advise road users of the change in lifting times.
