Closure of Fish Street, Shrewsbury following damage to Bear Steps building

Related topics: Highways, transport and environmental maintenance / Leisure, culture and heritage

Fish Street in Shrewsbury is currently closed to vehicles following what appears to be a recent vehicle strike to the timber-framed Bear Steps building.

An outline structural assessment of the timber frame was undertaken yesterday (Tuesday 18 August). The building has been temporarily supported and structural investigations are ongoing.

Whilst the repair programme has yet to be fully considered, it is envisaged that the scale of repair will be significant. As a result, we envisage that vehicular access to Fish Street will be restricted for around six to nine months.
