Work on demolishing the foot and vehicle bridges over Bankfield to the former open market will be completed this weekend.

Work will be carried out overnight tomorrow – 8pm Saturday to 6am Sunday – in order to minimise disruption.

There may be the need for a temporary road closure to allow the work on removing the remaining parts of the bridges to go ahead.

The sites at the foot of the bridges will then be landscaped.
