Yarm Bridge lane closures in place for repairs

Friday, June 3, 2016

Evening lane restrictions will be in place on Yarm Bridge from Sunday 5 June so essential repairs can be made after the structure was damaged by a car.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council is carrying out the repairs after the historic bridge was damaged when a car crashed into it in February 2016.

One lane will be closed and temporary traffic lights will be in place between 7pm to 6am every night from Sunday to Thursday for the next five weeks so that the scaffolding can be built and the stones replaced.

Both lanes will be open during the day and on Friday and Saturday evenings to minimise disruption at peak times.

However, on Thursday 23 June the lane restriction will be in place from 9pm until 6am to help manage traffic around the British Cycling Road Race Championships in Stockton.

The repairs to the bridge, which is an ancient scheduled monument and Grade II* listed, will be sympathetic to the structure using natural stone approved by Historic England.

The works will begin this Sunday (5 June) and are due to be complete in early July, weather dependant. The footpath will remain closed until the repairs are complete but pedestrian access is available on the opposite side of the bridge.
