Related topics: Highways, transport and environmental maintenance / Partner organisations

Nantmawr Bridge will be closed for up to three weeks from Tuesday 1 September 2020 to undertake repair works to the damaged downstream parapet. Works will also include the removal of trees from the upstream and downstream training walls.

Nantmawr Bridge is a Grade II Listed structure which carries the road from the Cefn Blodwel Junction to the junction with Nantmawr Bank over the brook on the border of Llanyblodwel and Oswestry Rural parishes.

While the road is closed, traffic will be diverted via Blodwell Bank, A495 and B4396.   Access over the bridge for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will remain available throughout the works, and access to frontages will be maintained up to the bridge closure.

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