Waterhouse Lane Bridge has been assessed as understrength in a recent investigation. The road across the bridge has been reduced to single lane traffic.
The single lane traffic will reduce the load on the bridge, and allow the bridge to remain open until a longer term solution can be planned. Temporary traffic lights will stay in place until the bridge repairs can take place.
The work on the bridge requires specialist planning and collaborative working with Network Rail. We will provide a further update once the repair has been planned and programmed.
