The closure is to allow for scaffolding and steel cable works on Clifton Bridge.
Highways England said:
‘We’re doing repair work to protect Clifton Bridge for years to come.
‘To put scaffolding in place, we’re closing all four lanes on theClifton Lane from 8 pm to 6 am on Saturday 20 June and Sunday 21 June. Leave more time for your journey along the from Monday 22 June.’
The next phase of our repair work is focused on parts of the bridge south of the river, nearest to and over Clifton Lane.
· So we can work safely, we need to close two lanes (of four) on the B679 Clifton Lane. This means one lane of traffic will continue to travel in each direction from the mini-roundabout/A52 slip road to the Christadelphian Hall.’
To safely put in place these lane restrictions, we’ll need to close all four lanes overnight (8 pm-6 am) on both Saturday, 20 June and Sunday, 21 June.
From, Monday 22 June, we encourage motorists to leave extra time for their journeys.
