MOTORISTS have started using the newly reconstructed Northern Road Bridge in Cosham.

As previously reported in The News, the busy commuter route has been closed to most traffic since workers began replacing it in February.

It was due to be shut until July – but things are going ahead of schedule and it has been able to reopen early.

Now, traffic will have to use narrow lanes and the speed limit will be reduced to 20mph.
