Closure at Church End, Ravensden

 

Bedford Borough Council has taken swift action to repair a structural defect at Church End Culvert, Ravensden.

 

The Council carries out regular monitoring of the bridge over Ravensden Brook on Church End, and a recent inspection highlighted a localised structural defect. The Council has put a lane closure in place so that the road can safely remain open, minimising disruption, while we investigate and carry out repair works which will be completed as swiftly as possible.

 

A long term solution to strengthen the bridge continues to be looked into, and the Council is working to establish the least disruptive feasible option for this works. In the meantime, the Council will continue to monitor the structure of the bridge to ensure it can remain open until these long term works are completed.

 

Cllr Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for Transport said “We apologise for any disruption that local residents face while these crucial works are carried out.  We have done all we can to minimise problems, but the more immediate and long terms works are necessary to ensure that this road to Ravensden and the surrounding areas can safely remain open.  We will continue to work with local residents, parish councils, and contractors to minimise disruption and ensure those affected by road closures are kept up-to-date.”
