Repair Works to begin Monday 27th March

Clare Turner, Town Clerk of Bridgnorth said ‘Bridgnorth Town Council is pleased to confirm that the remedial work will begin shortly on the retaining wall.’

After an extensive review of the various leases in relation to the relevant areas at the Cliff Railway, as well as investigations by a specialist engineering company and land surveyor our legal advisors have notified the Cliff Railway’s operator of the council’s intentions regarding the retaining wall.

It would not be appropriate to go into detail at this stage.

Constructive dialogue with the operator has taken place and we are pleased to inform that the Castle Walk will be closed from March 27th to allow this remedial work to start. The works will begin with scaffolding being erected to allow the contractor to access the area safely and still allow the regular maintenance to continue.
