Bridge opens this week

Bridge opens this week

The new footbridge linking Telford Town Centre with Telford Central railway station will open to the public on Friday 30 November.

The old red bridge that it is replacing is scheduled for demolition this weekend to make space for the “hockey stick” ramp to Platform One of the new bridge to be installed next week.

The new bridge including new lifts is open for the public to use. However it is still work in progress as some additional minor works and finishing touches to the public realm still need to be completed.

The official opening will be in Spring 19.
