Commencing on the 15th April 2019, major repair work will be carried out on the Tailrace Bridge to make sure that vehicular access can continue.

The repair work is likely to take 15 days but will potentially be cut down to 11 days with work over the weekends but will be dependent on the weather.

Vehicular traffic to the Blackwater Hostel will be diverted along Kearen Road, Wades Road and over the Blackpool bridge onto the Old Military Road.

Pedestrian traffic to the Blackwater Hostel will be routed across a footbridge behind the Business Park.

For both instances, signs will be displayed showing the directions.
