Bradley Bridge repair works and road closure of the Whitchurch Road, Maplas
Further to previous bridge investigation work back in January this year, there is now a schedule to carry out significant bridge repair works at Bradley Bridge starting on 2nd October 2017.
The works will involve removing the existing bridge parapet and building a stronger higher parapet with sandstone blocks in order to provide better containment for any vehicle collisions.
Steel ties will also be installed through the arch barrel to control existing cracks and through the side walls of the bridge to prevent further outward movement.
Both sides of the bridge will have scaffold erected for access. As the road is narrow, the road will need to be closed in order to carry out the works safely.
The works will take approximately 12 weeks.
The bridge will be closed to all traffic including pedestrians,and a signed diversion route as illustrated will be established as per attached map.
A through route over Bradley Bridge will not be available for emergency vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians.
