A PLANNED closure of Poole's Twin Sails Bridge on Wednesday night has been postponed.

Borough of Poole said the overnight closure for a “minor modification” will take place in future but a date has not been set.

This is to complete a piece of work that could not be done when the bridge was closed for a week in April for maintenance.

Last Thursday a pressure imbalance in the hydraulic system led to the bridge leaves being stuck part way open. A specialist contractor was brought in to resolve the issue.

The fault is being referred to the manufacturer of the components for further investigation. The specialist contractor attended the site at no cost to the authority
