Motorists are in for some hefty diversions after it was confirmed that Llandrinio Bridge will close during the week for eight weeks starting July 25.

The urgent repairs are needed and will costs £100,000 after last winter’s floods caused extensive damage.

It forced the immediate closure of the bridge which re-opened with weight and width restrictions in place.

But now the B4393 bridge will be closed from 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Fridays but will re-open in the evenings and at weekends with the present weight and width restrictions continuing.

As part of the works, the stonework will be repaired and repointing work will also be carried out.

Cllr John Brunt, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “We fully appreciate the inconvenience caused by the closure of bridge but it is needed to allow the repair works to take place safely.

“Once the repair works are completed, the weight and width restrictions will be lifted and the bridge will be reopened to all traffic.”

The works are due to be finished in mid to late September.
