Cound Arbour Bridge to close for maintenance

Related topics: Highways, transport and environmental maintenance

Cound Arbour Bridge – which carries an unclassified road between the A458 and Cound over Cound Brook – will be closed for maintenance from 5 July for seven days.

The work involves repointing of abutments and training walls, in-water works, and repairs to the approach fencing.

To carry out the work safely it will be necessary to close the bridge to vehicular traffic from 8am to 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 work, and access to frontages will be maintained up to the bridge closure.

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