Bradley Bridge in Malpas is now open

19 December 2017

Bradley Bridge in Malpas has now re-opened, slightly ahead of schedule.

Significant repairs were needed on the Bridge, which required Old Malpas Road (B5395) near Malpas to be closed in order to carry out the works safely.

Following investigation works on the bridge in January this year, repairs to the bridge began on Monday, 2 October 2017.

The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Karen Shore said: “The works involved removing the existing bridge parapet and building a stronger higher parapet with sandstone blocks in order to provide better containment for any vehicle collisions.
“Steel ties have also been installed through the arch barrel to control existing cracks and through the side walls of the bridge to prevent further outward movement.  Drainage on the bridge has also been improved.
“The road is now open, slightly ahead of the expected 12-weeks works programme.”
