A57 reopens at Dunham Bridge following severe flooding
Dunham Bridge on the A57 has now reopened after the River Trent burst its banks.
The road has been impassable due to severe flooding on on the Lincolnshire side since Boxing Day night.
The bridge was reopened to traffic today at 1.45pm, under two-way temporary traffic lights due to partial flooding still in place.
The use of lights will inevitably create delays at peak times, but this removes the need for the alternative extensive diversion route.

Drivers faced a diversion via either Newark or Gainsborough to get to and from Lincoln instead of crossing the toll bridge and travelling along the A57.
The lights will be removed as soon as safe two-way traffic flow is possible.
