The one-way road system is set to return to Bewdley from tomorrow (Tuesday, January 2) as flood work resumes after Christmas. 

Worcestershire County Council announced that Beales Corner and Bewdley bridge will revert to the one-way system from 7.30am.

A spokesperson for Worcestershire County Council said: “Beales Corner and Bewdley Bridge will revert to a one-way system for vehicles from Wribbenhall to Bewdley for resumption of flood scheme works by the Environment Agency Midlands.

“The two-way foot and cycle access will be maintained as before.”

The one-way system has been im place due to ongoing construction work for the new flood defences in Beales Corner.

The area has been affected by rising river levels in recent years and after the flooding in 2020, funding was made available by the government for impacted communities.

This enabled the Environment Agency to consider a flood risk management scheme for the Beales Corner area of Bewdley with the new defences aimed at protecting homes in the town and keeping the main roads open during times of flooding.
