Toll bridge being restored

On
3rd March work finally commenced to restore this historic Grade
II listed bridge. There has been a wooden bridge at this
location since 1781.

believe, but this toll bridge across the River Adur at Shoreham
was the route of the A27 main road until 1970. The bridge,
currently owned by West Sussex County Council, is now designated
as a bridleway and is an important route for cyclists and
walkers.

The restoration work is
expected to take 6 months and the bridge will remain closed
until the repairs have been completed. It is anticipated that
the bridge will re-open towards the end of August. An
alternative route for cyclists is through Shoreham airport. It
is a bit longer, but quite interesting.
