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

Colehurst Cottages Bridge – which carries an unclassified road over a tributary of the River Tern – will be closed from 9 to 20 June [2023] for essential repairs.

The normal working hours will be from 8am to 4pm.

The work will involve taking down and rebuilding the right end of the downstream parapet.

To carry out the proposed work safely it will be necessary to close the bridge 24/7 to vehicular traffic.

When the bridge is closed, traffic will be diverted by a signed diversion route.

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

Every effort will be made to minimise disruption during the work.

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