Update on Teewell Hill bridge widening works, Staple Hill
This news article was published more than a year ago. Some of the information may no longer be accurate.
We have now completed the majority of the work to widen the road bridge at Teewell Hill.
While we finish the project and tidy up the site there will still be some disruption caused to local residents and people using the railway path and we would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
The railway path is open to cyclists and walkers at present although there are restrictions placed on the width of the path until some of the building materials are removed from site over the next few weeks. Traffic lights also remain in place on the road above (Teewell Hill) to ensure safety for those working on site and for road users. We will still need to close the path on occasions to allow us to complete some of the engineering works and these closures will be signposted on site. The bridge is expected to reopen in December 2015.
We understand the disruption this has caused and that this project has taken longer than we originally anticipated, but trust the public will be reassured that making this crossing safe is our first concern. The end result will however make everyone’s life a lot easier with regards to moving across the bridge on foot, by bike or by car.
We will provide further updates as the work progresses. Once again we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
