Ground investigation works at Castle Walk footbridge in Shrewsbury

Ground investigation works are to be carried out in the vicinity of Castle Walk footbridge in Shrewsbury from 17th to 28th October 2016.

Works on the town centre side of the bridge are planned for 19th and 20th October 2016 only.

Pedestrian access will be maintained during the works.

The extreme end of Dorset Street will not be available for parking, and pedestrians will be conducted through the works when coming from the footpath that connects to Burton Street.

Access will not be possible up the steps immediately downstream of the bridge from the towpath. However nearby access to and from the towpath is available at Severn Street.

Vehicular access to Severn Bank will not be possible during 19th and 20th October 2016, but pedestrians will be conducted through the works.

The work involves trial pits and a borehole on the town side, with two boreholes near the bridge and a series of trial pits on the Monkmoor side alongside the walkway – all of which will be fenced off from the public.

Access for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will remain available at the bridge throughout the works.
