Repairs to a city centre bridge will see overnight road closures next month.

The work is due to start at the St Crispins Road bridge, just off the Barn Road roundabout, on Monday, August 1.

The eastbound side of the road will be closed each night from 7pm until 6am while the work to remove and replace damaged steel railings is carried out.  

It is expected to take five nights to complete.

The road will be closed from the junction of the Barn Road Roundabout until just before the junction with Oak Street.  

A closure is required due to the large machinery needed for removing the old railings and installing the new metal railings.  

Work is being carried out at night to minimise disruption and a diversion route will be in place to take eastbound traffic around the closure.
