As part of rail electrification, Network Rail will be raising the height of the sides of the Dragon Road bridge and installing anti-climb coping stones. To carry out the work the bridge will be closed to motorists from 9.30am on Monday 29 February until the end of April. Throughout this time, pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to cross the bridge.
If you'd like to find out more about this work, Network Rail are holding a drop-in event on Tuesday 9 February from 6.30pm to 9pm at the Winterbourne Methodist Church on Down Road. Members of the Network Rail project team will be on-hand throughout to explain more about the plans and to answer any questions.
The diversionary route for motorists during the temporary closure is: Harcombe Hill – Hicks Common Road – Flaxpits Lane.
Updated 16th February: The diversion route has been revised - see here.
