Chipping Warden temporary bridge installation

A reminder that we will be installing a temporary bridge across the A361, next to our compound in Chipping Warden, this weekend: 

  • This will require the closure of the A361, near Chipping Warden, 8pm Friday 14 October through to 6am Monday 17 October.

The work notice for the Chipping Warden bridge installation is available on the following link:

Notice-of-weekend-closures-for-bridge-installation-A361-Chipping-Warden-1.pdf ( 

We plan to install the bridge over two weekends with a further two weekend closure periods planned as a contingency.

  • A section of the A361 Byfield Road will be closed 24 hours a day over a period of up to 4 weekends beginning Friday 14 October to Monday 7 November 2022.
  • These closures will commence each Friday at 8pm until 6am Monday morning.
  • As stated above, shorter diversion routes may be available. However, our published diversion routes are approved by the local authorities and are of a similar road type, usually avoiding minor roads in order to reduce local community impacts.
