Following recent strengthening and investigation work on Union Street Bridge (the Swingbridge), the Bridge is now open again to road traffic.

As the works were originally delayed due to the availability of road surfacing contractors, the council has announced that the Bridge has re-opened on 28th January in advance of the revised date of the 4th February.

HGV traffic is now encouraged to utilise the Union Street route again, rather than the promenade.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during the closure and thank the community for their patience during these works.
