Plymouth suspension bridge set for repair work

tamar bridge

Tamar Bridge in Plymouth faces 18 months of disruption as major repair works get underway next month.

Repairs to the 57-year-old suspension bridge will begin April.

Tamar Bridge is a major road bridge carrying the A38 over the River Tamar between Saltash, Cornwall and Plymouth.

Taziker Industrial will undertake the £3.85M repairs project lasting between 10 to 12 months. This involves work on steel deck waterproofing, drainage enhancements and repairing the bridge’s road kerbs.

Following this work the bridge deck will be resurfaced over six to eight months.

The resurfacing contract will go out to tender in Autumn 2019, with expected to start in Spring 2020. The value of the project has still to be determined.
