Replacement of chain ferry to be delayed

Saturday, January 19, 2013 - 13:26

THE Cowes floating bridge will not be replaced for another two years.

The Isle of Wight Council had previously set aside £3 million in the 2012/13 capital budget to replace the ageing vessel, but has now deferred the project until the 2015/16 financial year.

Council leader Cllr David Pugh said the vessel would last until then and the authority would not spend money unnecessarily.
