The bridge near the bandstand in Keynsham Memorial Park has been shut by B&NES Council because it is unsafe.
The closure was advised by an independent engineer following a recent inspection, however, the council is hoping to reopen it in time for Keynsham Music Festival once it has been strengthened with scaffolding.
Following a recent inspection ordered by Bath & North East Somerset Council of the bridge near the bandstand in Keynsham Memorial Park, it was discovered that there is a problem with the internal hidden structure.
More work will be needed at some point in the future to make the bridge structurally sound.
The bridge was last inspected in July 2010 when no problems were found.
