I’m an inherently curious chap. So a further visit to the Woodlands Lane M3 Bridge on the day of it’s closure was an obvious choice. I’ve some photos taken from the bridge, which will cease to be over the weekend of 24th to 27th June.
On Monday (May 23), the bridge will close to vehicles so engineers can prepare for the demolition. Pedestrians will be able to continue using the bridge until Thursday June 23.
The demolition will take place between Friday June 24 and Monday June 27. The M3 will be closed between junctions 2 and 3 from 8pm on the Friday until 5.30 am on the Monday.
I have learned that the bridge will be subject of a blow down, which will occur at 2.0 pm at night, I think on Friday 24th June. I’ll do my best to find out more. My photos show that preparations for the carrying the services over the motorway are well advanced.
