Repair works on a Windsor bridge are set to result in several road closures over the next few months.
 
Starting from today (Monday), work is taking place on the  QueenElizabeth Bridge on the A332 Windsor Way, which requires urgent repairs.
 
Over time, water underneath the bridge has corroded the steel connections, or cable ties, that take the load of the structure as vehicles travel over it.
 
Volker Highways, on behalf of the Royal Borough, is working to replace the cable ties. While the majority of the work will take place underneath the bridge, some full and partial road closures will also be necessary between May and January 2020.
 
The first two road closures will take place during ‘phase one’ of the repairs, the enabling works, which will last eight weeks from today. 
 
One northbound lane will be closed, from Clarence Road to Junction 6 M4, from Monday, May 4 to Friday, May 8, 9am to 4pm.
 
The road will also be closed to all traffic on the northbound carriageway from Monday, May 18 to Wednesday, May 20, 10am to 6pm.
 
The main works will then take place from Monday, August 17 to Friday, January 8 2021, and will see many more closures.
