Essential work will start later this month on Water Eaton Bridge at Manor Road.
It will start on on Monday, July 24 and take around six-eight weeks to complete.
A diversion route will be in place during this time for all traffic but residential properties will have access at all times.
The diversion route will follow:
Water Eaton Road
Some congestion is expected, particularly at peak times, but it is necessary to close the road over the bridge in order to make a safe area where the work can be carried out.
The bridge works need to take place to ensure the future integrity of the bridge structure and will involve:
Taking off the top surface of the road to access the bridge structure (planing)
Remedial works to the bridge deck
Installing a new waterproofing system over the bridge deck
Parapet repair work
Resurfacing the road and footway
