BUG Notice: Birkenhead Bridge shared-use path re-opening soon!


1E

The painting of the handrails on the Birkenhead Bridge is scheduled to move from the Western (shared-path side) to the Eastern side on the 16th May (subject to weather delays). For vehicles this will involve some traffic restrictions, including speed restrictions and occasional stop/go traffic. For bicycle users it will enable re-opening of the shared path!

2ESome touch up painting will continue on the Western side, so the shared-path will be only half-width in places until finished. The temporary pedestrian crossing at the northern end of the bridge will remain in place to enable those who would normally use the eastern footpath to safely cross to the shared path.

Following the cleaning and painting of the handrails & fences, all the light standards on each side of the bridge will also be cleaned and painted. This may involve further movement of work activity from one side of the bridge to the other. The contractor will ensure as much space as possible is allocated for the fun run on the 15th May.
