REMINDER: NEWHAVEN BRIDGE CROSSING CLOSURE OVERNIGHT TONIGHT
September 15 2015.
The A259 Newhaven Bridge crossing will be closed to all traffic from 10.00pm tonight through to 5.00am tomorrow morning. The road will be reopened no later than 5.00am in the morning to allow commuters to catch the 5.16am train from Newhaven Town.
A second drive motor has been installed on the bridge mechanism and the night closure is needed to synchronise the motor with the first motor previously installed in August.
The completed works mean that the bridge will now be swung using two motors attached to either side of the bridge, rather than with the previous motor and chain system.
