Monmouthshire County Council are planning major maintenance and repair works to the Old Wye Bridge in Chepstow. The works will involve various structural repairs and maintenance painting. The contract is currently being tendered and is due to commence on the 14th July for approximately 7months. Due to 7.5T weight restriction over the bridge and installation of the scaffolding, it’s essential that the bridge be fully closed to vehicular movement during the works. Diversion signs will be in place. Provision for pedestrian access over the bridge will be provided. However, temporary closure of the bridge to pedestrians will be required during the installation and dismantling of the scaffolding.
