A road closure is planned for Friday, January 29 for maintenance to Sandwich Bridge.
A specially commissioned gearbox spline will be installed – a component unavailable ‘off the shelf’ when the bridge reopened in December 2020.
As previously publicised, these works are required to maintain operation of the swing bridge.
The road closure is for one day only, during the day, and vehicles will be routed around a signed diversion route.
Restricted access for pedestrians will be maintained across the bridge except for when the operation of the swing bridge being is tested.
During this time there will be no access across the bridge for periods of about one hour.
