As and from Tuesday 4th May, Cleveland Bridge in Bath will be closed for 12 weeks. If you normally travel from/through that area please allow extra time to make your way to the practice – BaNES are predicting possible delays of up to 25 mins.
Traffic control will be in place at the bridge from Tuesday 4th May for four weeks while scaffolding is put up and traffic will be reduced to one lane with traffic signals in place. A full bridge closure will start in the week beginning 31st May, with diversion routes in place for motorists.
The diversions for Bath city centre routes during the closure as well as outer diversions for through traffic on the A36 can be viewed on Bath & North East Somerset Council’s website.
Motorists are being advised to familiarise themselves with the diversion routes to minimise disruption to their journeys and to consider whether they could walk, cycle or use another form of transport around the city instead.
Pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to cross the bridge while it is closed.
