Woodart Bridge, Bannister Lane, Eccleston

We carried out a bridge assessment on Woodart Bridge and need to strengthen the bridge to make it safer for traffic to travel over.

To make sure the work can be carried out safely, we will be closing Bannister Lane to vehicles from 7am on Monday 3 June to 5pm on Friday 13 September 2013. A signed diversion route will be put in place while the road is closed via Wood Lane (B5250).
