Malehurst No 2 Bridge to close for repair work

Related topics: Highways, transport and environmental maintenance

Malehurst No 2 Bridge will be closed to traffic from 15 to 17 March [2023] for repairs.

The bridge carries an unclassified road – Horsebridge Junction with B4387 to Malehurst Junction with A488- over Rea Brook.

The work will involve repairs to the steel post and tubular rail parapets.

To carry out the work safely it will be necessary to close the bridge to vehicular traffic for the duration of the works.

When the bridge is closed, traffic will be diverted via A488, B4387 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, but every effort will be made to minimise any inconvenience.

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.
