Traffic has built up on both sides of the bridge since the closure, particularly around the Gapton Hall retail park.

The closure has also had a heavy impact on traffic flow into the town, with vehicles brought to a stand still around the Fuller’s Hill roundabout.

The bridge closed at around 11.30am, reopening shortly after 12pm, however traffic remains heavy.
