Reminder of Upcoming Road Closure - St Ives Viaduct

Reminder of Upcoming Road Closure - St Ives Viaduct

I am writing to inform you of our proposed closure of St Ives Viaduct, A1096, Harrison Way, St Ives over three weekends. The closures will run from 20:30 on the Friday until 05:00 on Monday morning during the following weekends;

18th March 2022 – 21st March 2022
25th March 2022- 28th March 2022
1st April 2022 – 4th April 2022
8th April 2022 – 11th April 2022

The reason for the closures are that the bridge joints that were installed in 2017 have been found to have faults within the joints themselves and concrete, and need to be repaired. This will mean we require access to the entire stretch of the carriageway and are looking to minimise commuter traffic by carrying out 24hr works on rotating shifts at weekends. It is hoped we can complete one joint per weekend, hence the 4 dates.

Please find attached a copy of our proposed diversion.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused and if you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards
