The swing bridge at Preston Docks has been closed off for annual maintenance.

All vehicles are being diverted while work is carried out on the bridge which allows boats in the city’s marina.

Preston Bus has advised its 75 service is not able to run in Navigation Way and is instead diverted via Mariners Way.

On its outbound route to Fleetwood the bus will go via Portway and then go past Morrisons and rejoin the normal route at Chain Caul Way.

Heading back into the Preston it does the reverse of this route.
