Tuckton Bridge repair work

Repair work to Tuckton Bridge this spring is not going to affect walkers.

There were fears that the bridge would close to all traffic.

The crossing over the River Stour is part of the Southbourne-Mudeford winter route via Christchurch. During summer time there is a ferry at Mudeford.

Often the winter walkers can use Wick Ferry downstream of the bridge to cross the Stour direct into Christchurch but this cannot be relied on in deep winter.

The Mudeford Ferry will resume daily crossings from Sunday 25 March when British Summer Time begins.

Tuckton Bridge was built in 1904 and is one of the first reinforced concrete structures in the country. There will be single lane traffic during the repair period and no traffic at all from Easter Tuesday to Friday.
