Cleveland Bridge Public Meeting


Bath’s historic Cleveland Bridge is in urgent need of repair. MP Wera Hobhouse has led the call for Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) to be kept out of our heritage city. She presented a petition on this topic to Parliament and has lobbied Government Ministers.

For her next virtual public meeting, Wera will host a panel of speakers who will bring us up to date on the latest news and plans for the bridge’s repair, and on the impact this will have on transport in our city and the surrounding area.


  • Mandy Bishop, Chief Operating Officer, B&NES Council
  • Cllr Manda Rigby, Cabinet Member for Transport
  • Cllr Kevin Guy, Leader, B&NES Council
  • Cllr Richard Samuel, Deputy Leader for Resources, B&NES Council

Wera Hobhouse said:

“Cleveland Bridge is being forced to carry much heavier vehicles than it can sustain. Repairing the damage will take time and will cause disruption across the city. I will continue to fight to keep HGVs out of Bath. Please join me and my guests to learn more about this important topic. You will have the opportunity to ask questions. The meeting will be held on Zoom. Please register for your free place now.”
