Bidford Bridge

Bidford Bridge

The historic bridge which crosses the River Avon in the centre of the village was closed over the busy summer of 2015 following an incident when a farm vehicle crashed into it, severely damaging part of its wall.

The repairs to the bridge, carried out by Warwickshire County Council together with other relevant agencies, were completed over a period of five months, and the bridge was again open to traffic from 3 November 2015.

The Parish Council would like to take this opportunity to thank Richard Roberts, the Project Manager, who ensured disruption was kept to a minimum and worked very hard to finalise the work within the scheduled timescale.

The documents, notices or events below are set out in chronological order, most recent first.

Traffic Survey Maps

The maps below depict the sites where a traffic survey will be carried out during mid February 2016 to establish the types and quantities of vehicles using the network of roads south of the bridge, including the main junction with Cleeve Road and Welford Road. This is to get a better understanding of the routes the HGVs are taking to travel to the main bridge junction. From this WCC can then look at potentially re-signing the route to try and encourage HGVs to join the A46 to the south or look at other measures.

Report Illegal Crossings of the Bridge

Residents can report any illegal crossings of the bridge directly to Warwickshire County Council by using the form below:

Multi-Agency Meeting Report

The report below is from the Multi-Agency Meeting held on Monday 30 November 2015, when representatives of a number of relevant organisations, including the Parish Council, met to discuss the problem of HGVs regularly crossing the bridge illegally.
