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

Coed-Yr-Hendre Bridge, which carries an unclassified road over the River Teme, will be closed to traffic from Monday 6 September 2021 for four weeks. This is a delay from the previous start date of Tuesday 31 August.

The repair works will involves the breaking out of the upstream and downstream parapet beams and undertaking of concrete repairs.

Other work includes erection of new parapets, installation of block stone to infill a scoured pool area, construction of new concrete aprons to the downstream right training wall, concrete and water proofing repairs to the bridge deck and resurfacing of the carriageway.

Unfortunately, in order to carry out the proposed work safely, it will be necessary to close the bridge to vehicular traffic. The normal working hours will be 8am to 4pm Monday to Friday.

When the bridge is closed, traffic will be diverted to the B4355 via local roads by a signed diversion route. Access over the bridge for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will remain available throughout the proposed work.

We thank residents, businesses and road users for their understanding while this important work is carried out.

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