Halton Borough Council, which is responsible for the Silver Jubilee Bridge, has informed my Department that the bridge will reopen fully to pedestrians and cyclists only at the end of November 2019. The Council is taking the opportunity of the bridge’s closure to undertake major maintenance work to remove high level viaducts and embankments, and create a new roundabout to access the town centre and Runcorn Station. These improvements are part of its new Runcorn Station Quarter development. The target date for reopening the Silver Jubilee Bridge to vehicles was spring 2020. Based on the latest programme, this will now be revised to summer 2020.
