13/9/17 UPDATE: signs on the bridge now say pedestrian access will continue to be closed until SEPT 22.

Ashcombe Road bridge is closed to all traffic, including pedestrians and cyclists for the next week or so.

It’s ‘take the long way round’ until September 7, according to the sign. BUT Highways say that the bridge will not open to pedestrians until September 11. So watch out when schools go back next week…

And note too in comments below, that the roadworks are likely to extend beyond the original deadline of September 24.
