Starting in a few weeks’ time, Spring Lane Bridge is going to be replaced by a new strengthened bridge with a footway for pedestrians.
The bridge has been struggling to cope with the increased pressure being put on it by modern day traffic levels for some time now. That’s why for the past four years the 130 and 312 buses and heavy goods vehicles have been diverted away from the bridge, causing a lot of inconvenience for local residents.
In order for the strengthening works to be completed:
• From 22nd March to 24th March there’ll be a single lane closure and southbound traffic only on Spring Lane.
• From 25th March to 15th June Spring Lane will be closed from its junction with Estcourt Road to its junction with Longhurst Road.
• From 16th June to 7th July there’ll be single lane closure and southbound traffic only on Spring Lane.
TfL will be holding a drop in session on Thursday 20th March 2014 from 7.00pm until 8.30pm at St Luke’s Church Hall, Spring Lane. Officers from Croydon Council will be there to answer any questions you may have.
If you need more information at any stage of the construction, please contact TfL on 0343 222 1234 or via the web at www.tfl.gov.uk/contact.
