A second provisional closure is booked for Tuesday May 24 from 8pm to 6am.

The closure is required to permit the safe lifting and fitting into place of the new parapets on Foundry Lane Bridge over the M6.

The Bay Gateway is expected to be fully completed and open for traffic by mid-October with major routes associated with it set to re-open over the next few months.
