Revised 505 timetable during Cross Keys Bridge refurbishment starts next week
A four-week project will see the Cross Keys Bridge at Sutton Bridge resurfaced, with work beginning on Monday 30 September.
As a consequence Stagecoach East 505 Spalding to Kings Lynn service will operate a temporary timetable. Please click here for the revised timetable. Roadside timetabling from Sutton Bridge to Spalding will be updated on Thursday 3rd October. All updates can be found here or at Stagecoach website www.stagecoachbus.com/about/east
Although the bridge will remain open throughout the project, temporary three-way traffic lights will be put in place.
Karen Cassar, assistant director highways, said: “The bridge has suffered a lot of wear and tear since it was last resurfaced around 10 years ago and it’s vital we repair it.
“Unfortunately, this isn’t as straightforward as resurfacing a regular road – swing bridges require specialist techniques and materials.
“We expect the repairs to take around four weeks to complete, but this will depend on the weather.
“This is an important route for the county, and there will inevitably be some disruption, so we would ask motorists to be patient, to leave additional time for their journeys and use alternative routes where possible.”
The bridge will remain operational for marine traffic throughout the project.
