With Network Rail’s major works on Bromham Road Bridge commencing on Monday 4 March 2019, Bedford Borough Council is reminding residents to find alternative transport routes.
Network Rail is closing the bridge to allow utilities running through the bridge to be removed and relocated ahead of the structure being demolished and reconstructed. The work is part of the Midland Main Line Upgrade, which will see the line electrified from London to Kettering and Corby via Bedford.
As part of this, as of Monday 4 March 2019, there will be a partial closure of the A4280 over the bridge (supported by a vehicle diversion via Clapham Road). Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the work, but drivers will be affected.
A Bedford Borough Council Spokesperson said; “Bromham Road Bridge is a busy thoroughfare and one of the main access routes in and out of Bedford. We would urge drivers to seek alternative routes wherever possible and to allow more time for your journey in order to help minimise any disruption and delay.”
