Considerable traffic disruption in the area – York Road closures.

Emergency work will start on Monday, July 8, on either side of Langton Street Bridge, also known as Banana Bridge.

Electronic sensors show that the movement of a 120-metre stretch of masonry wall near Langton Street Bridge is speeding up. The river wall could fail if urgent action is not taken. The council has programmed emergency repairs to the wall on the York Road side of the New Cut, either side of Langton Street Bridge.

These emergency works are expected to take around twelve weeks and include placing one-tonne bags along the bank of the river to reduce the tidal pressure on the wall. This will help to secure the river wall until long-term works are carried out.

Due to the size of the lifting equipment needed to carry out the emergency works, part of York Road will need to close for up to twelve weeks from Monday, July 8. Please be prepared for traffic disruptions around Windmill Hill City Farm and South Bristol.
