Laxey bridge work to be finished next month

Work at the new bridge in Laxey will be complete next month, almost a year after the one it replaced collapsed.

The replacement bridge opened to traffic in September, but work to install services has continued at the site.

Once the telecoms infrastructure currently being installed is complete, the Department of Infrastructure will shut the bridge again for resurfacing.

It's expected the bridge will be closed for no more than three days between November 28th and December 9th, depending on weather.

Flash floods last December resulted in the previous structure being destroyed.
