Lancaster Flyover works commence

By on 09/08/2009 in News

Motorists are reminded that planned overnight bridge deck works on Lancaster Flyover in the City Centre will commence tonight (Aug 9) and are expected to take eight months to complete.

Recent inspections and assessments have identified the need for protection works to the joints and supports of Lancaster Flyover, including waterproofing, cathodic protection (corrosion prevention)   and replacement of carriageway movement joints.

Significant delays and disruption to traffic are not anticipated as the flyover will only be closed during overnight (22.00 hrs - 06.00 hrs) off-peak periods when traffic using the flyover will be diverted around Lancaster Circus.

This scheme is an essential part of the City Council's Bridge Strengthening and Maintenance Programme, which is designed to maintain its bridge stock in a safe condition, meet current standards and maintain structural integrity.
