Lane closure for emergency repairs to Plimsoll Bridge

One lane of a Bristol swing bridge is closed to traffic from this afternoon for emergency repairs.

Bristol City Council has closed one of the outbound (southbound) lanes of Plimsoll Bridge today (Monday 19 June) to repair damage to the road surface.

It’s hoped that the works will be completed by the end of this week.

Metal plates on the road surface are sticking up from the carriageway and for the safety of all road users they need to be repaired as soon as possible.

There will also be lane closures on Cabot Way and Humphry Davy Way on both approaches to Plimsoll Bridge.

Motorists are advised to avoid the outbound route where possible and to expect delays, especially during the evening peak.

We apologise for the inconvenience during these essential works.
