Six-month closure of major Ironbridge route begins for essential repairs
A six-month closure of a major route into one of the county's most popular visitor destinations has started.
The Jiggers Bank road into Ironbridge will be fully closed to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians until spring next year to allow for vital repairs to sections of the 160m wall along the route.
The closure will see traffic diverted via the Buildwas bypass for 26 weeks.
All businesses and attractions in the Ironbridge Gorge will be open as usual with access via Dale End and Wellington Road.
