Lady Bay bridge reopening update as work continues after lorry crash

Background
share close

Lady Bay Bridge is set to reopen soon, although it will only be for one lane of traffic. A lorry crashed off the bridge on Monday, July 4 and highways officials from Nottinghamshire County Council have now warned there could be disruption for months to come.

Temporary repair works, including the installation of heavy-duty concrete barriers, are ongoing and will allow the bridge to reopen in one direction next week. Further details of the opening will be given on Monday 11 July.

Nottinghamshire County Council has been working in partnership with Nottingham City Council to reopen the bridge. The new temporary barriers will remain in place whilst works on a permanent repair are completed in the coming months.

The bridge will remain closed over the weekend meaning that traffic coming into or travelling through Nottingham City should use alternative routes including Trent Bridge, Clifton Bridge or Gunthorpe Bridge.

The director of a skip company whose son was in a lorry that crashed off Lady Bay Bridge has described what happened. At around 8.50am on Monday (July 4), Jimmie Whitehead, 28, a director at Vale Skip Hire in Nottingham, was in a lorry that left the carriageway and crashed down the embankment.

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue said he was freed by emergency services who attended the scene, which also included paramedics and police, and the lorry was eventually flipped and recovered after Jimmie was taken to hospital. He is the only man who was involved in the incident.

Spectators attending the T20 International at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground this weekend are encouraged to plan their journey in advance and look out for signage directing them to event parking at the Nottingham Forest Football Club car park and at the Nottingham Rugby Club.

Councillor Neil Clarke MBE, Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “We know that closures like this cause disruption and so we would like to thank motorists for their patience whilst we have worked to make the bridge safe.

“Thankfully, incidents like the one which happened this week are rare, and I would like to recognise our repair teams for their hard work which has meant we are on track to partially reopen the bridge next week.

“The new temporary barriers will allow us to ease some disruption while our teams work on completing the permanent repair of the bridge, and I’d like to reassure everyone that we will be working hard to get this reopened just as soon as possible.”
