From the Council :
In late 2019, Bath and North East Somerset Council made known the need to carry out essential structural refurbishment of Cleveland Bridge in Bath. The bridge is an important link for traffic crossing the River Avon and the refurbishment is necessary to maintain the transport network now and for the future.
With funding from the Department for Transport, works were originally intended to take place in summer 2020, but the wide ranging and severe impact of the COVID pandemic meant that we were unable to go ahead as planned at that time. However, we have been continuing to work on our plans in the background and can now update you on the next steps.
We will shortly be publishing important documents on our planning portal which outline how we will carry out work on this listed structure that is sympathetic to its historical significance. We will also be advertising temporary traffic regulation orders that are necessary to manage traffic during construction.
The plan is for work on the bridge to start mid April, under traffic signal control, before a full closure of the bridge in mid May for around twelve weeks. The further use of traffic signals will be needed up until the completion of the work which is expected to be in October. More details regarding programme will be on our project web page.
