The Environment Agency’s £355,000 project to built a bridge on the river walk to cover the breach in the bank that they will make later this year is now starting.
The piling contractor (Bullivants) will be working on the piles and piling caps. This work is anticipated to take 2 weeks.
It is currently anticipated that the river path will need to be closed for an 8 week period, beginning at the end of the first week in October. This is to allow the bridge to be installed and the breach created. If they can safely open the path at weekends and shorten the period the route is closed they will endeavour to do so, but site and public safety are their highest priorities and this may not ultimately be possible.
Please keep and eye out for updates and changes as the project continues, as they seek to keep you informed.
