Major delays in Kendal after lorry hits bridge

A LORRY striking a railway bridge led to the closure of a key section of the diversion to avoid Victoria Bridge, in Kendal, which is currently shut for repairs.  Parkside Road was closed and blocked both ways following the incident this morning, leading to severe congesiton from Valley Drive to the A684 Singleton Park Road. However, it has now re-opened in both directions.


A spokesperson from Cumbria County Council said: “The bridge is owned by Network Rail and is on the Oxenholme to Windermere line.”

It is understood Network Rail carried out a safety inspection on the bridge before a decision was made to re-open the road.
