Bridgewater Bridge now closed to marine traffic
by Brighton Council
The lifting span for the Bridgewater Bridge is now closed and will remain that way for approximately nine months as of 1 March, due to the ongoing development of the new bridge.
Boat goers with vessels that need more than 2.2 metres clearance will no longer be able to rely on the bridge opening to reach the other side of the river.
The new Bridgewater Bridge will share a height equivalent to the Bowen Bridge and will allow free traffic flow to both road and marine users.
