Essential maintenance work at Dudbridge Lock bridge, Stroud


Work on Dudbridge Lock bridge is planned to keep the structure in good serviceable condition for future years.

Four days of essential work will begin on 10th April 2017 and involves replacing worn bridge joints that are reaching the end of their life.

The repairs will take place during school holidays when traffic flows are quieter. A diversion route will be in place for the duration of the work. Drivers travelling from Dudbridge Hill should continue on to A46 Bath Road, then left onto Cainscross Road, and vice versa.

Residents are advised to check @glosroads on Twitter and local media for updates.

Scott Tompkins, Gloucestershire County Council’s lead commissioner for highways, said: “This work is an important part of our duty to residents and businesses in Stroud; it is crucial for this bridge to be well maintained. The county council would like to thank drivers for their patience ahead of any short term disruption while this essential work is carried out.”
