Drivers are being urged to check the status of the Cleddau Bridge before setting off over coming days due to the forecast of very strong winds.

There are likely to be closures to high sided vehicles and full closures at times as Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice hit the UK.

The latest situation based on the current forecasts - and liable to change – suggests closures to high sided vehicles are likely on the Cleddau Bridge this afternoon (Wednesday, February 16) from about 12 pm and continuing through the early hours of Thursday morning.

On Friday, closure to high sided vehicles is anticipated from around 2 am, and full closure from about 5 am for several hours, causing significant disruption to commuting traffic.

Any downgrade to a closure to high sided vehicles only is likely to continue until mid-afternoon at the earliest.

Over the weekend reduced wind speeds are forecast but sporadic high sided closures may be needed, particularly on Sunday.
