Stratford Bridge - temporary closure
Revised Date: Stratford Bridge will now be closed from Monday 9 April: the date previously advertised has changed according to the contractor, whom I spoke to this afternoon. Advance warning signs of the 4 week closure, showing the revised date, were erected today.
The temporary closure is for bridge maintenance work to take place, with a diversion in operation.
Enquiries have been made about pedestrian access (of particular interest to Avon Farm residents). The contractor is unable to confirm if this will be possible and will be assessing the situation when works begin.
The Stratford Bridge to Salisbury 12 bus service won't be affected since it terminates just south of the bridge, with buses turning around at the Stratford Road junction with Phillips Lane.
