Latest update on bridge closure from Severn Trent

A Severn Trent spokesperson said: “To allow for emergency sewer repairs to continue, we will be closing the bridge leading into Stourport on the A451 for two days next week, Monday (5 JULY) and Tuesday (6 July).

“We know this might cause disruption, and we’d like to apologise if it does, but this is emergency work and the closure of the bridge will allow for the teams to safely make the repairs needed to fix the sewer, while keeping everyone else safe.

“We’ve worked closely with the local council on the closure, and will be providing a fully sign posted diversion and while the bridge will still be available for pedestrians to use, anyone travelling by vehicle and uses this route may want to plan ahead for their journeys to avoid any issues.

“Again, we’re incredibly sorry for the issues caused, and want to thank everyone for their patience while we work on this complicated repair. It is our absolute priority to carry out the repair as quickly and as safely as possible, with a view of opening the bridge and getting everything back to normal as soon as we can.”

  • The bridge will be closed for two days, Monday 5th to Tuesday 6th July
  • Pedestrians will still be able to cross the bridge on foot

Whilst last week Severn Trent undertook repair work on the pipe, the pipe continues to leak and now requires additional repair work. The engineering team are working through the repair options and in the meantime Severn Trent will be continuing with their tankering operations. To ensure the safety of the workers and other road users, 3-way traffic lights have been set up at the junction of A451 Dunley Road and Harold Davies Drive.

Due to the complexity of the repairs that are needed Severn Trent expect the work will take several weeks and this will include some overnight work. Severn Trent apologises for the inconvenience that this may cause as they appreciate how difficult it may be for local residents.

The Severn Trent team have updated local residents on the situation and will continue to do so and will also keep us updated on the project as it develops.
