Tyringham Bridge reopening

The bridge was significantly damaged in August following a road traffic collision involving two vehicles.

After an assessment, it was fully closed to all traffic as it was unsafe for any vehicles to use.

The bridge was built in 1793 and is a Grade I Ancient Scheduled Monument due to its historical importance so any works had to be agreed and overseen by Historic England before taking place.

The parapets were extensively damaged and had to be dismantled and rebuilt in the original positions.

New stones were needed to replace the damaged ones and to fill cavities caused by the impact.

Historic England have inspected and approved the work that the Council has undertaken so we will be reopening the bridge to traffic from Friday 18 November.
