Make Cleveland Bridge Weight Restriction Permanent

 

There is currently a weight restriction of 18 tons on Cleveland Bridge as a precautionary measure before works are carried out to strengthen the Grade 11* listed structure. The impact of that has been a far more free flowing and pleasant environment enabling different choices of transport to be made. The image beneath shows Bathwick Street since the limit has been put in place.

 

 

We the undersigned are asking Highways England to consider making the temporary 18 ton weight restriction on Cleveland Bridge permanent to protect the historic asset and surrounding fragile structures, encourage active travel, enhance the World Heritage site and conservation area, whilst improving community mental and physical health.

Cllr Manda Rigby
