Platt Mill Bridge over River Perry to close for a month

A bridge which carries the B4397 Baschurch to Ruyton-XI-Towns road over the River Perry is expected to be closed for up to a month.

Platt Mill Bridge will be shut during the school summer holidays while Shropshire Council carries out repairs.

A council spokesman said in January traffic lights had been put up at the bridge after part of a retaining wall was found to be leaning heavily.

He said the bridge needed strengthening.

The work will start in late July or early August he added.

The bridge will be closed to traffic but open for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists.
