Litlington bridge closure for refurb work

A TEMPORARY CLOSURE of Bridleway Bridge in Litlington (Alfriston Bridleway 20) has been enforced to allow a complete refurbishment.

The work involves re-painting the steel beams, replacing decking and handrails. Scaffolding was being put up on Wednesday (March 7) to complete the works.

East Sussex County Council said the bridge was officially due to close for 42 days, from March 7.

A County spokesman said: “We hope the work will only take about three weeks so we hope to open it up before that.”

Walkers can still use New Bridge or White Bridge as alternative routes whilst the refurbishment works take place.
