Network Rail will be carrying out essential work to replace Pembroke Road and Milford Road railway bridges in Merlins Bridge, Haverfordwest, later this month. This work will involve some temporary road closures.

The 80-year-old bridge deck which crosses Pembroke Road, requires replacing as it is nearing the end of its lifespan. Network Rail will demolish the existing railway bridge deck – which carries the South Wales Mainline – and install a new, more resilient structure, all part of their Railway Upgrade Plan to improve the reliability of the railway.

The A4076 at Milford Road railway bridge will be fully closed from 7pm on Friday 15 February until 6am on Monday 18 February.  There will be no pedestrian and cyclist access during the temporary full road closures at each bridge so Network Rail will be providing a shuttle bus service from one side of the bridge to the other throughout the temporary closures.

Network Rail are hosting  ‘drop-in’ events on Thursday 10 January and Thursday 31 January, from 3pm to 6pm at the Merlins Bridge Welfare Hall, Pembroke Road, SA61 1JW.

No appointment is necessary and representatives from Network Rail’s project team will be on hand to provide information and answer any questions.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please visit their webpage www.networkrail.co.uk/merlins-bridge, telephone our 24-Hour National Helpline on 03457 11 41 41 or email crwales@networkrail.co.uk.
