Lloyney No 2 Bridge will be closed for repair from Monday 16 September to Tuesday 24 September 2019 between the hours of 8am and 4pm. The repair works will involve masonry work to the upstream and downstream parapets.

The bridge carries a minor road between Llanfair Waterdine over the River Teme to Lloyney village. The bridge must be closed to traffic while repairs are being undertaken as the road is too narrow to for the work to be carried out safely with the bridge open to traffic.

During the road closure, traffic will be diverted using the B4355 toward Knucklas and over the River Teme at Mynaughty Poeth Bridge.

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

Steve Davenport, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member 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.”
