Whitchurch Bridge closure

Whitchurch bridge will be closed from 06:00 hrs 3rd October until April 2014 for its long heralded rebuild.  The length of the closure is immediately north of the access road to Adventure Dolphin on the Berkshire side to between the Bridge and Eastfield Lane on the Oxfordshire side. Up to date details of the work can be seen on the dedicated website here.

A temporary footbridge will be installed next to the site for pedestrian access across the river. Dismounted cyclists would also be able to use this.  A diversion will be in place via the A329 to Streatley, B4009 Streatley and Goring High Street, B4526 Reading Road (To Crays Pond) and B471 back to Whitchurch.

To help with the flow of traffic there will be temporary parking/ loading  restrictions on the B4009 in Streatley. The closure has been jointly coordinated between Oxfordshire County and West Berkshire Council’s.

Enquires relating to the works should be addressed to the company dealing with the project, Balfour Beatty Construction, on 0800 032 9760, for the attention of Alan Jones, Public liaison officer..
