Cable inspection work on the M48 Severn Bridge crossing is ahead of schedule.
Cable inspection on the Severn Bridge is set to finish earlier than expected with a seven-month traffic management programme introduced in March due to be lifted in August.
The original plan predicted lane closures would be lifted in September.
“The cable inspection work is progressing well, and that’s good news,” said Highways England project manager Chris Pope. “The inspections are vital to allow us to understand the current corrosion levels of the suspension cables, and the work so far has shown that the measures we implemented over the last 10 years have been effective in ensuring the long-term viability of the bridge and the safety of its users.”
