Live updates as Newport Bridge to be closed 'for some time' after HGV fire

Traffic coping… for now

At the moment, traffic is being diverted away from the Newport Bridge during the closure. Surrounding roads are coping, but that could change as the end of the school day blends into rush hour. It’s understood the bridge could be closed for some time.

The A66 is busy but moving around the Cargo Fleet Interchange, while the A171 at Ormesby Bank is busy – especially heading north down the bank from Nunthorpe, with travel time currently at four minutes.
