Griffiths Civil Engineering & Construction are carrying out works to the bridge in Upton upon Severn. This will inevitably cause traffic delays in the town. Some general information is given below.

  • The completion date for the works is the 16th December.
  • The traffic lights will be in place for 24 hours a day. They cannot be removed during the evening and overnight due to the presence of scaffolding on the bridge.
  • The traffic lights are manually operated during peak times in order to respond better to immediate traffic conditions. They will be timed automatically outside peak hours.
  • The bridge will be closed in both directions overnight on dates from Monday 28th November to Friday 2nd December from 8pm to 6am. During these times, a diversion will be in place.
  • There will be a full closure from 9pm on Friday 2nd December until 6am on Monday 5th December. During this time, a diversion will be in place.
  • Griffiths have confirmed that there will be pedestrian access across the bridge at all times during the works.
