Camera van to support Transport for Buckinghamshire patrols on Marlow Bridge

| January 7, 2019

A camera van will be deployed to help support patrols on Marlow Bridge to prevent overweight vehicles from crossing during a closure of the A404.

During the weekend of Friday 11th to Monday 14th January 2019 advance warning signs and a camera van will help to support teams from Transport for Buckinghamshire at they patrol Marlow Bridge to prevent overweight vehicles from crossing.

The action is being taken during a closure of the main A404 Wycombe to Maidenhead road while Highways England replaces the renovated Volvo footbridge across both carriageways.

The A404 is scheduled to be closed at 9.00pm on Friday 11th January 2019 and reopen at 5.00am on Monday 14th January 2019.

Mark Shaw, Buckinghamshire County Council Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member, said: ‘My main concern is to protect Marlow Bridge from damage by vehicles over three tonnes. While the main A404 is closed for the weekend by Highways England, the temptation to use Marlow Bridge as a short cut might be too great for some drivers.
