Closure of Thistleford Bridge for essential repairs

Related topics: Highways, transport and environmental maintenance

Thistleford Bridge – which carries a “C classified” road over the River Roden – will be closed for repairs from 1 July 2024 for two days.

The work will involve repairs to the upstream parapet and approach fencing.

To carry out the proposed work safely it will be necessary to close the bridge to vehicular traffic between the 8am and 4pm each day.

When the road 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 works, and access to frontages will be maintained up to the bridge closures.

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