"While the double-decker insert is in place, elements of the
bridge that need repair, including the decking, would be lifted
away using the temporary bridge as a works platform and
transported by barges to an off-site facility for safe repair
and restoration."

Doesn't say if other river traffic would be allowed to resume at the
same time as cars.

Presumably not till the dodgy bits have been removed for restoration.
How much river traffic would there normally be that far upriver?


Do we know what the threat to river traffic is? Is it the whole bridge
collapsing into the river, or bits falling off?
