The major project will begin in September and will see the bridge reconstructed, to enable trains to continue to run reliably and safely for years to come.

To allow the work to take place safely, a section of Gainsborough road will need to be closed.

Initially, this will be a single lane closure with traffic lights in place, but the main work will require a full road closure.
