Sculcoates Bridge to close for two days

Sculcoates Bridge will be closed for essential repair work.

The bridge in Chapman Street will be closed on Tuesday 15 October at 6am to Wednesday 16 October at 8pm for the works.

During the most recent inspection in July, some maintenance work was identified. The specialist parts to carry out the repair work have now been received and the work will be undertaken over the two-day closure.

Councillor Anita Harrison, portfolio holder for highways, said: “These are essential works that the authority needs to undertake. We apologise in advance for any disruption this may cause to motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.”

The diversion route will be via North Bridge.
