Tintern Wireworks Bridge Improvements

Working in partnership with Monmouthshire County Council, the refurbishment of the Tintern Wireworks Bridge will begin next year. 

The Grade II listed Tintern Wireworks Bridge, which lies on the border of Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire, is in poor condition and in need of repairs.

A joint project to renovate the bridge will be carried out by Gloucestershire County Council and Monmouthshire County Council, but investigative works need to take place first to establish what repairs are needed.

Previous assessments of the condition of the landmark have identified several defects, cracking and widespread corrosion. The repairs are essential to prevent the bridge from becoming unsafe to use.

 

What are we doing?

The investigative work will take place over five days from Monday 22 to Friday 26 February 2021.

Marshals will be placed at either side of the bridge during the work and access for pedestrians will be permitted when required and safe to do so. Vehicles are not currently able to use the bridge due to structural concerns.

The inspections will be followed by an assessment of the work required to fully refurbish the bridge and a detailed design of the preferred option will be put together later this year.

Contractors will then be selected to carry out the work, which is due to get under way in 2022.
