Road Closure

Road to be closed:            Soulton Bridge near Wem, which carries the B5065 over Soulton Brook to the northeast of wem
Start Date:                           Monday 3 September 2018 for up to 6 weeks

The bridge parapet was extensively damaged in early November 2017after a heavy goods vehicle collided with the upstream parapet of the bridge resulting in severe damage to the bridge spandrel and parapet. The repair work will involve rebuilding the upstream parapet and elevation and resurfacing the carriageway over the bridge.

It will be necessary to close the bridge to vehicular traffic. Access over the bridge for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will remain available throughout the work.
A diversion will be in place. Please see details under news, roadworks and road closures
