Two-way traffic signals have been installed on the bridge and will be in place until April 29, with a footway diversion for pedestrians.

Pedestrians will be diverted on to the carriageway, which will be narrowed during the works.

The push button crossing immediately south of the works will also be switched off.

The work will be carried out between 7.30am and 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, with no noisy work happening before 8.30am.
