Week commencing 11 October 2021, the bridge will be temporarily opened with two-way temporary traffic lights to assist other road works within Coleshill for approximately 1 week.

The bridge was closed again on 18 October following the completion of other road works within Coleshill. Works to the bridges parapet along the carriageway has now continued. The stone parapet which has damaged by a road traffic incident has progressed with all stone being delivered for the rebuild and new stone being placed.
