Rushton Cottage Bridge to close for essential maintenance

Related topics: Highways, transport and environmental maintenance

Rushton Cottage Bridge – which carries an unclassified road over a tributary of the River Severn – will be closed for maintenance from 11 July 2024 for two days.

The bridge is near Upper Longwood, Eaton Constantine.

The work involves repairing the timber parapets and vegetation clearance

To carry out the proposed work safely it will be necessary to close both bridges to vehicular traffic 24 hours a 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.
