Govia Thameslink explain why the bridge closure is 1st & 2nd rather than 3rd & 4th of August

Due to our need to have the water mains turned off while we crane the bridge sections in to place and the local water company not being able to resource that work this weekend as originally envisaged, we are having to move the one remaining full closure slot previously scheduled for Sat 3 and Sun 4 August. That work will now take place tomorrow and Friday – Thursday 1 and Friday 2 August.

 The remaining date and time slots when the bridge is scheduled to be fully closed with no access for any users will therefore be:

  • Thursday 1 August and Friday 2 August – from 8.45am until 8.45pm each day

 I’d like to take the opportunity to remind you of the helpline that was established for anyone in the local area with questions about the bridge closure or about the arrangements that have been put in place to alleviate the impact of it – 07903 509790. Please do point your constituents to the helpline number as appropriate.
