Many of the bridges in Blackpool are in a bad state of repair. To ensure that these bridges will remain open to traffic into the future, 10 of Blackpool's key bridges will be undergoing a massive repair programme over the next 5 years.

Squires Gate Bridge

Work is now underway to replace the concrete and steel beams supporting Squires Gate Bridge which have weakened over time. The carriageway will also be replaced.

Squires Gate Lane is now closed to traffic between Sandridge Place and Hillcrest Road for the work to take place.

Work started on Tuesday 7 November and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2018.

Pedestrian access to the bridge will be maintained at all times while the works are undertaken.

Harrowside Bridge

Checks to Harrowside bridge revealed that steel reinforcements had deteriorated faster than we expected and the bridge had to be closed for safety reasons.

This means that Harrowside is now closed to traffic between Clifton Drive and Brixham place.

Repair and upgrade works to the bridge began Tuesday 7 November and are expected to to be completed by the 12 February.

Pedestrian access to the bridge will be maintained at all times while the works are undertaken.
