Series of road closures to delay Barrow motorists
Last updated at 12:21, Friday, 31 January 2014
MOTORISTS travelling in Barrow next week may experience minor delays due to a series of planned road movements by BAE Systems.
On Monday an unlaiden ‘scheuerle’ (heavy duty transporter) will travel along Bridge Road at around 9.15am to the Devonshire Dock Hall gate on North Road.
Due to the size of the vehicle, there will be a police escort and there may be minor disruption to traffic for around 15 minutes.
On Wednesday at around 9.15am, an unlaiden scheuerle will leave the shipyard’s south gate on Michaelson road and travel down to the docks on Ramsden Dock Road.
Police will escort the vehicle and temporary parking restrictions will be in place outside Egerton Court flats on Michaelson Road from 6.30am.
These restrictions will remain in place until the following afternoon
On Thursday at around 2.15pm, the scheuerle will transport a section of steel for the fifth Astute class submarine, Anson, from the docks on Ramsden Dock Road to the main shipyard gate on Bridge Road.
In preparation for the move, temporary parking restrictions will be in place along Michaelson road from 6.30am on Thursday 6 February until the move has taken place.
On Friday 7 February, a ‘jig’ (a metal structure used to aid the construction of submarines) will be transported from Bridge Road to the Devonshire Dock Hall gate on North Road.
All movements will take approximately 15 minutes.
BAE Systems would like to thank local residents and motorists for their patience and co-operation.
