Bridge to get makeover

The Iron Bridge is set for a spruce up that will see both structural and cosmetic improvements to the world-famous icon. Work by English Heritage will include repairs to cracks, examination of key structural elements to ensure their soundness, and a clean and repaint that will give the bridge a new lease of life.

Work on the bridge, which will celebrate its 240th birthday in 2019, is set to start in September, having been moved forward from next spring. The bridge will be surrounded by scaffolding during some of the operation, which will help preserve the historical structure for many decades to come.
