North Bridge will be closed as the refurbishment continues.

However, tonight’s works, which would have closed the road to southbound traffic between 6.30pm and 6am tomorrow, have been cancelled.

In the amended schedule, Thursday, March 11, will still see closure in both directions from 6.30pm - 6am.
