Twmpath Bridge near Gobowen will be closed for up to two weeks from Monday 3 August 2020 to undertake repair works to the north-west brick pilaster, following vehicle impact damage to the bridge parapet.

The bridge carries Twmpath Lane over a disused railway line near Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital.

Due to the nature of the repairs a 24-hour road closure will be required for the duration of the works. When the road is closed, traffic will be diverted via the A5, A495, B5009 and Twmpath Lane.

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

The work will be undertaken by the council’s term maintenance contractor Kier, with supervision by the council’s term consultant WSP.

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

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