Bridge ‘still on track’ for end of September opening.

That’s the news l was given by B&NES transport cabinet member Cllr Manda Rigby when l asked about progress on the multi-million pound repairs taking place on Cleveland Bridge – a major river crossing for vehicles – which is currently closed.

In an email she told me : ‘We are still on track to open Cleveland Bridge to traffic by (the) end (of) September.

There will be limitations on what traffic via management plan, as consistently said, until the scaffolding is dismantled 6 weeks later – again, subject to change, if further faults are found.’

Fingers crossed then.
