A new pedestrian and cycling bridge is opening in Warwickshire.

The bridge over the A429 Coventry Road in Kenilworth uses a former railway line as part of an off-road route to Warwick University and Berkswell.

County Councillor Helen Walton said: "It is fantastic to see the bridge in place.

"The greenway has been used in a low key way for many years, but connecting it to the town opens it up to many more people without having to go by car."

The bridge, which has been part-funded by the Big Lottery Fund, is due to be declared open at 12:00 BST on Thursday.
