Farndon Bridge to be closed for Maintenance
18 May – A drop in information session will be held on 24th May in Farndon War Memorial Hall 4:30pm – 6:30pm CLICK HERE FOR THE OFFICIAL CWaC STATEMENT
10 May – A scheme is proposed for the summer of 2018, the current proposed start date is 16th July 2018 and the estimated time frame for these works is 14 weeks; this however is to be confirmed by the Contractor. The work is to re-waterproof the bridge and also to improve the drainage on the structure. The existing traffic signals that control the traffic on the single lane structure are coming to the end of their serviceable life and the opportunity is being taken to replace these as part of the works. Ongoing works will be required over the next five to ten years to replace the most heavily weathered masonry elevations of the structure. The works require a full closure to vehicles throughout the project to repair this important structure; however, access for pedestrians & cyclists will be facilitated for the majority of these works. There will be periods during safety critical work that the bridge will need to be closed to all users; however, these periods will be between 9:30am & 2:30pm only during the week – our current estimates indicate that the full closures will amount to in the region of 10 days.

C56 BUS – Running till 2019
GOOD NEWS – The C56 Bus has been funded by Wrexham and Chester from 1st April until 31st March 2019. Stagecoach are pleased with the initial usage but feel an increase is needed to keep the service sustainable. They advertise great fares especially for under 19’s and weekly travel. So for the people of Farndon, please demonstrate your desire to maintain the bus service by using it. As the saying goes ‘Use it or Lose it’
