Pictures: A52 Clifton Bridge fully reopened today

After months of waiting the £20million repairs were completed today Saturday 23 October 2021.

Closed since February 2020 for repairs, motorists could finally use all lanes on the A52 Clifton Bridge from 6 am this morning.

The A52 bridge over the River Trent shut after corroded steel was found in the structure.

National Highways confirmed all remaining restrictions had now been lifted.

The bridge, built in 1972, is technically one of two, and forms part of Nottingham’s ring road.

As well as the corrective work, further maintenance has been carried out along the route, including resurfacing.

Richard Waterfield, project manager for National Highways, said: “We’re really pleased to get to the end of the project.

“Most of all we’re eternally grateful to everyone who relies on the bridge – whether they’re a motorist, whether they use a bus over the bridge, or whether they work close by and been diverted with diversion routes and whatnot.

“We thank everyone for their patience and understanding.”
