Bradley Bridge — Repair
Probably most people will know that on 28th December a car hit the Bradley Bridge, crashing into the end of the new parapet on the Whitchurch side and pushing about a 3 metre length of the blocks down the bank into the brook.
Two way traffic lights have been installed and a traffic lane closed off next to the damaged parapet.
Later this week (perhaps tomorrow) the road will need to be closed for a few hours to put temporary protective barriers in place.
Following this, it will be necessary to close the road again for a few hours to allow scaffolding to be erected behind the parapet and access for a crane to lift the sandstone blocks back to road level.
In a few weeks time the road will then be closed again to allow for the permanent repair works to be undertaken
Updated information will be provided as it becomes available.
