Disruption to chain ferry

Thursday, December 13, 2012 - 14:05

HIGH spring tides, heavy rain and strong winds are expected to cause disruption to the Cowes chain ferry over the next three days according to the Isle of Wight Council.
Crossings could be suspended around the times of high tide, if water levels become high enough to stop the ferry operating, a spokesman warned.
It would also not be possible to operate a passenger only launch as the pontoons usually used for the service would be underwater.
The council said it would keep the service running for as long as possible, but could not guarantee the service would not be suspended.
People may need to make alternative arrangements for getting between Cowes and East Cowes around the times of the high tides, the council advised.
High tides in Cowes are as follows: Friday, 00.24 and 11.49; Saturday 01.16 and 12.36 and Sunday 01.58 and 13.30.
