County Council keeps watch on Marlow Bridge
Teams from Transport for Buckinghamshire will patrol Marlow Bridge this weekend (11-14 January) to prevent overweight vehicles from crossing. Patrols will be supported by advance warning signs and a camera van.
The action is being taken during closure of the main A404 Wycombe to Maidenhead road while Highways England replaces the renovated Volvo footbridge across both carriageways.
The A404 will close at 9pm on Friday 11 January and reopen at 5am on Monday 14 January.
Mark Shaw, Buckinghamshire County Council Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member, said: “My main concern is to protect Marlow Bridge from damage by vehicles over three tonnes. While the main A404 is closed for the weekend by Highways England, the temptation to use Marlow Bridge as a short cut might be too great for some drivers.”
