Cleveland Bridge renovation project

Information for coaches and heavy goods vehicles

When surveys identified the urgent need for repairs to the bridge, we put in place a temporary ban on heavier vehicles (18t+), to protect the structure from further deterioration and damage. Our research shows that this ban affects around 600 vehicles per day.

This order is not permanent, and will only remain in place until all repair work is complete. Without the renovation, we would ultimately have to close the bridge permanently.
