New traffic signals planned for Moor Street railway bridge

An increase in the weight limit of commercial vehicles has meant that older bridges throughout the country have had to be reassessed for safety.

Unfortunately edges of bridges are not as strong as middle, thus, “accidental wheel loading” – when vehicles go up on the pavement – is problematic. To prevent this, higher kerbs and shuttle signals have to be installed.

Moor Street railway bridge falls into this category and work will be carried out soon.
