Landmark Boston footbridge to close for cleaning

It will be closed later this month

Pedestrians in Boston will face disruption when a landmark footbridge closes for cleaning later this month.

St Botolph’s footbridge will be closed from Monday, March 25 until Wednesday, March 27.

The bridge will be closed to the public on those days. Pedestrians will be redirected via Emery Lane, Town Bridge and Church Street. This will enable the work to be carried out safely.

Richard Waters, principal engineer – structures, said: “This is a difficult bridge to clean, so we have to bring in specialist equipment to get the job done.

“Due to the nature of the work, we’ll have to close the bridge while it’s carried out. However, it will look much better afterwards. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
