Overnight closures of Town Bridge in Peterborough city centre will be needed as part of resurfacing works.

Improvements to the Lower Bridge Street area are set to enter the final phase with resurfacing work taking place on Town Bridge next week (from Monday, March 13).

The works will take place overnight with the closure of Town Bridge to motorists between 8pm to 6am. The closures are scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and could take place on Friday as well.

Signs will divert traffic along an alternative route which loops back into the city centre via Oundle Road, Nene Parkway, Longthorpe Parkway, Thorpe Road and over Crescent Bridge.

An emergency lane will remain open to ensure access for fire, ambulance and police vehicles. Pedestrian access across Town Bridge will also stay open at all times.

The £2 million Lower Bridge Street project is set to be completed this summer.
