The new bridge will be a modern, well designed structure that will provide a significant enhancement to walking and cycling facilities in the area. It will create a fully accessible link between residential and commercial areas for pedestrians, cyclists, wheelchair, mobility scooter and pushchair users.
It will offer many improvements over the existing bridge with ramped approaches, a four metre wide deck and a resin anti-slip surface.
The bridge will also have handrail lighting and decorative arch lighting, designed to have minimal impact on nearby residential properties whilst providing safety for bridge users.
