Bridgnorth Bypass Update 7th Sept 2017

A458 Improvement update

Improvement works on the A458 Bridgnorth bypass continue.

The work on the A458 and the roundabout approaches between the A458/B4373 (Wenlock Road) junction and the Stourbridge Road roundabout remain due to finish by 10 November.

Works to the safety barriers, street lighting and drainage over the entire site have been ongoing. These works will continue into the beginning of October during daytime hours. This will involve further periods where both the Ludlow Road Roundabout, the Kidderminster Road Roundabout and the Wenlock Road Junction will be controlled under traffic signals.

Resurfacing of the Ludlow Road and Kidderminster Road roundabouts will continue with a closure on the Ludlow roundabout on the evening of the 8th September and on the Kidderminster road roundabout on the evening of the 11th September. For further details, please see the road closure information below. 24hour closures will occur the 15th September and into week commencing 18th September to allow final surfacing (see Below).

Resurfacing of the A458 itself will be ongoing during night time road closures into mid-September.

Taking advantage of the night time closures on the A458 itself the works to the deck joints on Bridgnorth River Severn Bridge will begin on the evening of the 11th where the existing joints will be replaced on one running lane at a time. This work will be ongoing during night time road closures until mid-October. During daytime traffic signals will be in place with one lane closed.

All night time road closures will take place between the hours of 20:00 and 06:00. Local diversions will be in place and signed at all times.
