Diversions as Sheinton Bridge in Shropshire is replaced


Traffic is being diverted as engineers work to replace a bridge which collapsed during floods in Shropshire.

Sheinton Bridge near Cressage collapsed into a brook in October 2008, minutes after engineers, who were repairing it after previous floods, got to safety.

Motorists have been using a temporary bridge but this has been closed until Tuesday to allow an arch for the new bridge to be built.

Traffic is being diverted via Cressage and Much Wenlock.

The temporary bridge will also be closed from 28 to 30 June. Pedestrians and cyclists are still able to use the route.
