Update from Severn Trent Water on planned emergency works on Stourport Bridge next week (July 5 and 6 2021)

bridge Published Thursday, 1st July 2021

Statement released by Severn Trent Water in regards to works on the Stourport Bridge for two days next week, Monday (5 July) and Tuesday (6 July).

To allow for emergency sewer repairs to continue, we will be closing the bridge leading into Stourport on the A451 for two days next week, Monday (5 July) and Tuesday (6 July).

The bridge will be closed for two days, from 7am Monday 5th to late Tuesday 6th July

Pedestrians will still be able to cross the bridge on foot.

We know this might cause disruption, and we’d like to apologise if it does, but this is emergency work and the closure of the bridge will allow for the teams to safely make the repairs needed to fix the sewer, while keeping everyone else safe.

We’ve worked closely with the local council on the closure, and will be providing a fully sign posted diversion, and while the bridge will still be available for pedestrians to use, anyone travelling by vehicle and uses this route may want to plan ahead for their journeys to avoid any issues.

Again, we’re incredibly sorry for the issues caused, and want to thank everyone for their patience while we work on this complicated repair. It is our absolute priority to carry out the repair as quickly and as safely as possible, with a view of opening the bridge and getting everything back to normal as soon as we can.
