Heavy traffic at Bridgefoot due to issue with Chester Road swing bridge


MORE issues with the Chester Road swing bridge caused heavy traffic congestion on Bridgefoot and surrounding roads this morning.

It caused lengthy delays during rush hour with local bus services and traffic congestion in and around the area.

The bridge was stuck in the open position for more than an hour earlier this morning, but has since re-opened.

The bridge has been stuck in the open position numerous times in recent years and is scheduled to undergo maintenance work as part of a programme to paint the bridges across the Manchester Ship Canal.
