Jubilee Bridge, near to Thorne, will shut on August 8.

The crossing is classified as a weak bridge, with road narrowing barriers in place at either end to prevent large vehicles using the crossing.

A Doncaster Council spokesman said: “Following ongoing damage caused to the width restriction walls at Jubilee Bridge, repairs are planned to be undertaken starting on the morning of 8 August and to be completed on the afternoon of 9 August.
