Evelith Bridge near Shifnal will be closed for up to two days from Thursday 15 November 2018 to enable investigation works to be undertaken.

The work will involve trial holes to check for a hollow area within the carriageway.

The bridge carries Evelith Lane over the Wesley Brook.

The bridge must be closed to traffic while repairs are being undertaken as the road is too narrow for the work to be carried out safely with the bridge open to traffic.

During the road closure, traffic will be diverted using local roads.

Access for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will remain available at the bridge throughout the works.

Steve Davenport, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet for highways and transport, said:-

“It is appreciated that the bridge closure will cause some inconvenience, and everyone involved will do all that they reasonably can to reopen it as soon as possible.”
