Road closure - New Elvet Bridge

(3 July 2020)

We would like to remind you that Durham County Council announced that New Elvet Bridge will be closed for up to 14 months commencing on 20 July. These essential works to New Elvet Bridge will see the lifting and supporting of the central section of the bridge whilst work is undertaken on the deck joints, along with extensive concrete repairs. If you have immediate concerns please contact

The bridge deck will also be waterproofed and resurfaced to extend the life of the bridge. If you have any questions relating to the detail of these closures, to support in your planning, please visit Durham County Council’s website for further detail on this planned work. Please consider the impact on your department/college/service as a result of the closures.
