St Botolph’s Bridge in Boston town centre is shut from today as part of works to replace it with a new £750,000 structure.

The bridge – which spans the Haven between the police station and Standard office – closed this morning and is due to reopen on February 21.

Pedestrians are being signposted to use Town Bridge instead.

Work on the replacement had been due to start last summer but, after a delay, was put off until January to avoid clashing with Christmas.
