We have been advised that by National Highways that the planned closure of the B1514 Brampton Road on Sunday 12 December 00:01 to 20:00 has been delayed by one week to Sunday 19 December.


The closure, which was to allow the safe sliding of the bridge span has been pushed back following additional checks that have been carried on temporary works prior to the demolition of Span 5 (southern span). This has in turn caused delays to Span 3 (northern span).


Instead, overnight on Saturday 11 December Span 3 will be jacked and B1514 Brampton Road (between the RingGo car park and Edison Bell Way) will be closed from 20:00 to 05:00. The sliding of the span will now take place Sunday 19 December and the road closure will be in place from 00:01 to 20:00.


They have apologised for any inconvenience caused.
