How to get to Whitwell Station while the bridge is being repaired
from 4th Nov – early December
Improvements and maintenance to Whitwell Station Bridge, which carries the Marriott’s Way are set to start on 4 November 2019 and last for up to 5 weeks.
All the timber boards across the bridge will be replaced and friendly non-slip rubber mat surfacing will be fixed across the new wooden deck, scaffolding will be put up to allow corrosion on the surface of the metal underside of the bridge to be cleaned and repainted.
The need to erect scaffolding to access the underside of the bridge, requires Whitwell Road to be closed to vehicles until the work is complete. Pedestrian access under the bridge and along Whitwell Road will be maintained at all times and a fully signed official diversion route for drivers will be in place.
A short diversion route will also be provided for users of the Marriott’s Way as the bridge will not be passable while the improvement work is underway.
