Bath Two Tunnels – Monksdale Road Bridge

Works to start constructing the bridge over Monksdale Road on Linear Park will be commencing on Monday 16th January. The works are anticipated to take no more than 12 weeks.

During the works one lane of Monksdale Road directly outside Linear Park will be closed to traffic and a traffic management system will be put in place to allow two way traffic movement on the road.

In approximately 10 weeks time the road will be closed for a maximum of two days to allow installation of the bridge itself (the main bridge structure will be constructed off site and delivered in two halves which will then be lifted into place). When we have a firm date for this to take place we will let  local residents know.

Sustrans (who are doing the work) have sent a letter outlining the above to residents of Monksdale Road. Please don’t forget that some trees are due to be cut down for the bridge to be installed, but they will be replaced!
