Operational Note: Prince Street Bridge to open to pedestrians and cyclists next week

Prince Street Bridge is set to reopen to pedestrians and cyclists on Monday (May 22).

The structural refurbishment works have now been completed, and the City Docks Engineers have fully tested and recommissioned the operational movements of the bridge and are now satisfied that it can be reopened to the general public.

Further monitoring and testing will now take place before scaffold is removed, and the bridge can be reopened to southbound traffic movements out of the city.

This will give the traffic network additional flexibility and capacity to allow two major traffic schemes in Prince Street and at Temple Gate to be completed. 

The southbound-only traffic route is likely to be in place until at least summer 2018, at which point the Mayor will review the usage of the bridge.
