Essential repairs to start at Riverford Bridge
Posted on: 6 January 2017
Essential repair work will get underway at Riverford Bridge, Staverton, on Monday (9 January).
A series of inspections and repairs will be carried out on and adjacent to the structure on the A384 over the next five weeks.
Work will include the replacement of safety barriers and edge supports, as well as the rebuilding and repair of the retaining walls and approach walls.
Temporary traffic lights will be in place for the first week and the bridge will then be completely closed from Monday 16 January, for a period of four weeks. Contractor South West Highways will be working seven days a week during the road closure in order to minimise its duration. The road is expected to re-open by Saturday 11 February.
During the closure, the official diversion will be signed via the A384, A385 and A38. Local businesses and communities can still be accessed either side of the closure.
Members of the public with any queries about the scheme should contact Sonia Marshal on 01404 821500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
