Brasely Bridge reopening

From the County Council’s Project Engineer:

Firstly, I would like to thank you for your patience throughout the reconstruction works of Brasley Bridge.  For your information;

We shall be looking to open the road on Friday 28th August, however, please be aware that a number of work items will not be finished (as a result of working around utility finishing work, which could not be resourced by the utility companies prior to the date).  The following activities will need to be finished after 28th August:

Re-connecting utilities from temporarily diverted routes back on to permanent routes.  There will also be associated making good of the carriageway/footways in these areas.
Removing the temporary footbridge and making good the approaches to it.
Removal of the temporary footpath to the south of the road and associated verge works/seeding in that area.
New footway construction on the south east corner.
Footway screeding on the bridge deck.

We currently understand that all of the above can be completed within single lane closures, with the exception of the temporary footbridge removal (which will require a road closure).  Osborne are planning to leave the road open over the Bank Holiday weekend and then recommence works with a lane closure in the following week.
