Please see the following message from Wiltshire Council:
As you are aware we have been preparing a scheme to strengthen Hankerton Bridge on the north route out of the village. We are currently progressing a bridge deck replacement scheme with site works programmed to commence 2nd March 2015. Our Term Contractor Balfour Beatty Living Places will be carrying out the bridge strengthening works and maintaining the temporary diversion route.
The bridge works will be carried out under a full road closure and we anticipate the work to take 6-8 weeks to complete. During the road closure a signed diversion route will be maintained for all vehicles and a temporary footbridge will be installed on site to provide pedestrian and cyclist access. Advance notice will be given by letter to all Hankerton addresses during February 2015 and Advance Signs will be positioned on the bridge at least 2 weeks before the works commence.
During the works progress reports will be prepared and issued weekly, I am working with Wiltshire Council website team to have these posted on our website and linked via the Malmesbury Community Matters website.
May I take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause and thank you in advance for your patience.
