Further to the notice below, we are pleased to advise that contractors have repaired Sheffield Swingbridge, and it is now fully operational.

NAVIGATION CLOSURE (8.30am Tuesday 19 July 2022 until further notice)

We are sorry to report that Sheffield Swingbridge has sustained significant damage following a road traffic accident in the early hours of this morning.

We are not confident at the moment that the bridge can be operated safely and have asked contractors to attend urgently to carry out an inspection, advise and instigate repairs.

We will update this notice with further information once the inspection is complete later today.
