The Glynde railway bridge is now closed for five weeks for repairs

A railway bridge has been closed for five weeks for vital repairs.

Motorway teams closed the bridge at Glynde, near Ringmer, to carry out waterproofing work and repair potholes.

It will also work on repointing brick walls and painting the steel railings.

The bridge was closed yesterday and work will continue until Monday 17th October.

A spokesman for East Sussex Highways said: “We are aware that this road closure will cause some disruption to motorists, but it is important to ensure the safety of the public and workers while repairs are carried out.

“Investigations have shown that water has entered through the bridge, which can damage the structure and contribute to the formation of potholes in the road surface.

“Repairing the waterproof membrane and resurfacing will protect the bridge and result in a smoother ride for motorists using this stretch of road.”

People can still cross the bridge during the work.

Traffic will be diverted via the A27, A26, Ringmer Road and New Road.

Part of Lacys Hill running through the village and over the bridge will be closed. The Glynde railway bridge is now closed for five weeks for repairs
