Sheppey Crossing

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 25 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many times the Sheppey crossing has been closed since it was opened in July 2006. (111414)

The A249 Sheppey Crossing has been formally closed three times since it opened in July 2006.

In addition, on 19 December 2006 the northbound carriageway only was closed for a short period to remove a broken down lorry.

The old Kingsferry lifting bridge next to the new bridge remains open and has been used as an alternative route when the Sheppey Crossing has been closed.
