Barrow road at Walney bridge now open after movement of BAE Systems' jig
Last updated at 08:49, Friday, 03 January 2014
Barrow roads were temporarily closed while a BAE Systems transportation jig was moved.
Police blocked off the road at Walney bridge, the Dock museum and Barrow Island for about 15 minutes on Thursday January 2 2014, slightly behind schedule.
The jig, which was used to move the front-end construction last Wednesday, was moved from Devonshire Dock Hall to Shipyard gate.
Movement took place about 9.45am rather than the estimated 9.15am.

Have your say
So Kay when did Elizabeth say BAE would not survive with out her??? She was just replying to comments from Josie . Or Jodie as u call her.......... And shes correct in what she says a lot of planning goes in to these big moves . And maybe you should all remember if BAE didn't move these loads there would be no ship building done which equals no jobs ........ Patience is a virtue ......
Just put up with the occasional hold caused by BAE moving things around and be glad they are here.
Without them Barrow would be a Ghost town.
