Cleveland Bridge renovation project

How we will manage the work

We appointed Dyer and Butler to carry out the refurbishment.

Work to Cleveland Bridge started on 4 May 2021, with the first stage being to construct the site compound and erect scaffolding, using off-peak temporary signals to make space for the work.

Currently only pedestrians, cyclists, and cars and vehicles under 2.0 metres wide can use the bridge until the repairs are fully completed.

Investigations have revealed unexpected and severe corrosion on a critical section of the structure. Further analysis is being carried out to find out the options for repair, but until we have that information the current traffic management will remain on the bridge with an anticipated update on repairs in early April.

Estimated project schedule
Date Project stage Traffic restriction
4 May 2021 Project start Traffic signal control 
28 June to October 2021 Main structural repair Closed to all traffic
25th October to date to be confirmed Additional structural works Traffic signal control, light traffic only
Date to be confirmed Completion works and demobilisation Traffic signal control, light traffic only

We have drawn up, and will regularly update, our own traffic management plan, which has details of how we will monitor the situation throughout the works. Exact details of the project schedule and necessary traffic restrictions are likely to change. Please check this regularly if you will be affected.
