The closure will now take place on the weekend of Friday, May 29, after being originally scheduled for last weekend.

This is due to high winds affecting crane operations to lift sections of a new bridge into place.

A spokesman for road builders Costain said the date change was chosen to avoid the bank holiday next weekend.
