Since the closure of Abbotsford Bridge on 13 May, a site compound has been established and a temporary footway and lighting installed to provide a pedestrian route during the construction period. This is now in public use.
A temporary bridge is in the process of being installed to support utility supplies that require diverting temporarily. In the coming days electrical diversions are set to begin.
River diversion works are also in progress.
To support local people and businesses, additional signage has been placed on the local road network.
We will continue to post updates on this webpage as the scheme progresses.
