Haydon Bridge improvement works

The bridge expansion joints on the Haydon Bridge ‘New Bridge’ within the village are being replaced and the road and footpaths resurfaced.

The works started on August 5 and are expected to continue until September 8, with works being carried out between 7am and 4pm. Throughout the whole four-week period it will be necessary to close the bridge 24-hours a day. 

For pedestrians this will mean using the nearby ‘Old Bridge’. Vehicles will be diverted via the A69.

The bus stops outside the Community Centre that cater for the 685 service between Newcastle and Carlisle will be relocated to a temporary bus stop on John Martin Street near the public conveniences for the duration of the works.

Haydon Bridge High School is also undergoing major building improvement during the summer and access to the car parking area and the school is also closed to allow safe and secure working.
