When will Clopton Bridge in Stratford reopen? Latest details from Warwickshire County Council
CLOPTON Bridge in Stratford is open again to traffic in both directions.
The lane leading out of town towards the Banbury Road was closed most of Thursday (9th November) after a wall was hit by a car – the driver was trying to flee from police.
It was open again on Thursday night.
Yesterday evening (Thursday) Warwickshire County Council told the Herald: “We will endeavour to get both traffic lanes open as soon as it is safe to do so.
“Our contractor has been carrying out a temporary repair, but the mortar needs time to set.
“One of the engineers will be visiting the site in the morning to assess the strength of the temporary repair.
“We will need to carry out a permanent repair, but the stone for the bridge has a long lead time, so this is likely to be at least a month away.”
