I went past today and still no sign of the crash barriers. They also seem to be resetting all of the manhole covers and drains, for some reason, and the main part of the bridge still needs a coat or two of tarmac. The 10th September still seems the likeliest date for reopening.

I went past at about 9:30am this morning and they were pile-driving the legs to the crash barriers on the left hand side as you approach from Deganwy.
I agree the 10th is still the likely date, but it may open to pedestrians/cyclists a few days earlier.

Thanks Dave, Congratulations on the New (Enhanced) Forum. Couldn't resist a comment on the subject of Measdu Bridge. Something I've kept a close eye on in Council.

Welcome aboard, Jason;  I echo Dave's sentiments.

I heard today informally that the bridge is still on target for opening on Friday.  :Sisyphus:

I'm sure she will be extremeley relieved when it does open. There won't be any ceremony, the plan is to just open it asap.

PCSO Mike Smith has had a walk over the bridge today and taken some pics for his FaceBook page.

I overheard a conversation yesterday, which implied that due to having a cycle lane, there was insufficient room for two buses or large lorries to pass on the bridge. If true, you couldn't make it up!   :-[

That would be incredible if true.  8) I'm glad I called this thread 'the long running saga' as I suspect there's a lot more to come. :huh1:
