We are working with St Peter's Church Mancetter and Mancetter Memorial Hall to put on a free community event on Sunday 5th June from 1pm - 4pm. Everyone welcome.
Replacing the Curly Wurly Bridge
To install the new bridge deck and access ramps safely, the A5 will be closed between
Mancetter and Holly Lane as follows;
A5 full closure overnight on Saturday 28 May, 8pm to 6am.
A5 full closure overnight on 30 May, 31 May and 1 June, 8pm to 6am.
A5 full closure overnight on 6 June, 7 June and 8 June, 8pm to 6am.
A5 full weekend closure from 8pm on Friday 10 June to 6am on Monday 13 June.
To demolish the old bridge safely, the A5 will be closed between Mancetter and Holly
Lane as follows;
A5 full closure from 8pm on Friday 17 June to 6am on Monday 20 June.
Please be advised that whilst we demolish the old bridge, pedestrian access across
the A5 will be closed for reasons surrounding safety. We believe access across the A5
will be reinstated by Wednesday 22 May. However, our contractor will aim to have
access reinstated at the earliest convenience, and a time that it is safe to do so.
Our work is subject to change due to weather or any unforeseen circumstances.
For any further updates, please subscribe to our mailing list by emailing
noreplyA5WMids@nationalhighways.co.uk. If you’ve previously subscribed no further
We’ll make every effort to manage noise and additional lighting whilst we work at this
location to minimise the impact on local residents. We’ll also aim to reopen the
carriageway as soon as it is safe to do so.
