Cuttle Brook bridge opens in Chellaston
Published: 11 August 2021
A new multi-use bridge has now been completed over Cuttle Brook close to Infinity Way on National Cycle Network Route 6.
The new bridge is 3.5 metres wide and will provide a significant improvement Route 6, the multi-use cycle path that runs between Derby City centre and Swarkestone. Further to this, equestrian users will now be able to take advantage of this route.
The scheme began on Monday 28th June and involved the removal of the existing narrow bridge over Cuttle Brook, close to Infinity Park Way and the installation of a new multi-use bridge constructed in its place.
The work was completed on Tuesday 10th August, and the bridge was officially opened by Councillor Ross McCristal, and City Council Officers that worked on the project.
This scheme was part of the Local Growth Fund programme of works, with the aim of improving sustainable transport routes to Infinity Park Derby.
Councillor Ross McCristal said:
The old bridge was regularly requiring patch works and was no longer suitable for users.
I’m delighted with this new modern and fit for purpose multi-use bridge for pedestrians, cyclists and now horse riders too.
I’d like to thank everyone for their patience whilst the work was completed.
