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.

The Forest of Dean and District Horse Riders and Carriage Drivers Association is delighted at the cooperation shown by Sustrans in recognising that equestrians will benefit from sharing in this safe off-road riding route and fully including them in the planning application.
