The New Bridge

Sustrans commissioned two designs and both options were discussed at the public consultations. The public favourite was the underslung truss.

The video below features this bridge and shows a deck widened to 2.5 m from 2.0 in response to the public preference apparent from the consultation.

I have cycled to work every single day using the road, for 3 years. A safe cycle path for me would be so much better than using the road which can be so dangerous especially at rush hours. It would enable people to commute, exercise, learn to cycle safely, and not pose a threat to other road users. A cycle path would make a HUGE difference to many cyclists including myself.
