Old Caynton Mill bridge remains closed

Following on from the Emergency Road Closure at Caynton Mill Road in November 2016 a detailed inspection of the bridge structure identified that there had been movement of the abutment and of the bridge deck which had rendered the structure unsafe.

As a consequence of this, and on critical safety grounds, Telford and Wrekin Council decided to close the road for an initial period up to 18months or until a permanent solution and repair could be designed and implemented.

It is now necessary for the closure to be extended for a further 18months to Wednesday 21st November 2019 for ongoing structural investigations of the bridge or until a permanent solution and repair can be designed and implemented.
