Boxted Bridge temporary closure to support investigations

From Monday 5th to 9th July 2021 coring investigations will be conducted at Boxted Bridge on Wick Road to establish the extent of the existing foundations of the abutments.  These findings will support any future plans for the bridge.

During this time it will be necessary to temporarily close Wick Road at Boxted Bridge 24 hours a day until the works are complete due to the restricted working area.  

No vehicles will be permitted to pass over the structure until the works are complete and the road is reopened. 

Signed diversions will be in place during the closure and nearby residential properties will remain accessible from either side of the structure. 

Dates may be subject to change if the works are affected by poor weather or if unexpected issues arise.

Access for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will be possible over the structure during these activities.

We are sorry for any inconvenience during our works and would encourage drivers to take additional care travelling in the area, observing signage in place.
