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.
