Clifton Suspension Bridge Closure

A three-day off-peak closure of the Clifton Suspension Bridge between Tuesday 21st June and Thursday 23rd June 2022 will see engineering inspections of the iron chains of the bridge, maintenance of the weigh beams on each side of the bridge plus completion of other planned annual tasks.  To enable these essential works to be carried out, the bridge will be closed to traffic and cyclists for three days, from 9.30am to 3.30pm each day.

During these bridge closures pedestrians will still be able to use the bridge, using the one-way circulatory system but there will be no access for vehicles and cycling will be prohibited. Cyclists may dismount and walk across the bridge, but due to the narrow footways, are requested to avoid using the bridge if possible.
