27 May at 11:35A complete guide to the upcoming works to Burton Bridge (Trent Bridge/ The Old Bridge):
PLEASE SHARE - would be great to get this message across to as many people affected in Burton and South Derbyshire.
🚘 Three lanes out of the four will close on 18th June. 🚘 The recently re-surfaced outside, westbound lane will remain open. 🚘 The lane open will allow vehicles to travel into Burton from Ashby Road (A511), Stapenhill Road (A444) and Newton Road (B5008). 🚘 Burton’s outbound traffic will need to reroute either onto St Peter’s Bridge or through Willington and Repton. 🚘 On two nights, the bridge will be completely shut for re-surfacing. 🚘Pedestrian and cycle access will be maintained at all times. 🚘 Traffic light phasing will be monitored and reviewed to improve traffic flow across Burton. 🚘 The Bridge will re-open (if works go to plan) on Friday 24th August.
Consideration was carefully given to a tidal flow option over Burton Bridge where the only lane open would change direction at 1pm. This may have had the effect of reducing delays in peak PM traffic flow. However all emergency services have asked for consistency across the Bridge at all times.
🏗 works will be carried out to the bridge structure, 🏗 concrete repairs, 🏗 parapet replacement, 🏗 resurfacing, including sections of swan junction, 🏗 kerb and drainage works, 🏗 pedestrian guardrail replacement.
This work will allow the bridge to continue to operate and take increased volumes of traffic for many decades to come.
The wise decision to carry out most of the work over the summer holidays will reduce the distruption but it is inevitable that severe disruption will occur. If you require any further information to plan ahead please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
