Kingswood Station rail bridge repairs on Waterhouse Lane

Works start Monday 5 August

These are to install temporary traffic lights at this location. During this time the road will be closed to all traffic including emergency vehicles. A signed diversion will be in place. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

What are we going to do?

We are installing traffic lights on the Waterhouse Lane Bridge. The road will be closed during these works. Access for pedestrians will be maintained.

How will this affect me?

Waterhouse Lane Bridge has been assessed as understrength in a recent investigation. The road across the bridge will be reduced to single lane traffic following the installation of the lights.

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. Therefore, these 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 do not have a date for these works as yet.
