Closure of Lawley North No 2 Bridge for repair work

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

Lawley North No 2 Bridge – which carries a “C” classified road along Frodesley lane junction to the 30mph start at Acton Burnell – will be closed to traffic from 3 to 7 January 2023, from 9.30am to 4pm, for repair work.

The work will involve vegetation clearance of the structure, repairs to wash out the upstream right training wall, replacement of the downstream concrete post and tubular parapet, and painting of both parapets.

To carry out the proposed work safely it will be necessary to close the bridge to vehicular traffic during the above times.

When the bridge is closed, traffic will be diverted via the A49, A5 and local roads by a signed diversion route.

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

Inevitably there will be some disruption during these works, though we will always endeavour to minimise any inconvenience and people are thanked for their understanding.

The work will be carried out by Shropshire Council’s term maintenance contractor Kier, with supervision being provided by WSP on behalf of Shropshire Council.
