Tower Road closed this weekend for emergency bridge repairs

EMERGENCY repair works to the 'A' Bridge on the A554 Tower Road between Birkenhead and Wallasey means the route will be closed to traffic. The road will be closed between the 12 Quays Ferry Terminal and the Dock Road/Birkenhead Road Junction, on the Wallasey side of the bridge, from 8am, Saturday, 28 January 2017. It will reopen from around 6pm, on 29 Sunday 2017.  The usual diversion route; via Rendel Street, Cleveland Street, Duke Street, Dock Road and vice versa; will be in place and will be clearly signed using temporary traffic signs and the electronic variable messaging system.  Pedestrian access will be maintained across the bridge at all times while the works take place, as will access to the Ferry Terminal, from the Birkenhead side of Tower Road. The work is to repair the nosing plate, which links the bridge deck to the quayside. If allowed to deteriorate further, it could completely fail in the near future which would result in a much larger repair and a longer period of closure.  The decision to carry this work out this weekend is to minimise the disruption to those travelling to and from work or education, particularly given the works that are already taking place on the local rail network. The Council has recently confirmed that work will start in March to replace the 'A' Bridge and the 'C' Bridge permanently to address long standing maintenance issues with these outdated structures.
