New cycle and pedestrian bridge planned for Bedford

It's hoped a new cycle and pedestrian bridge will be built by the side of Bromham Road Bridge in Bedford, as part of the continued electrification of the Midland Mainline.

The Mayor of Bedford, Dave Hodgson, said the council had reached an agreement with Network Rail to build the separate bridge and the company will contribute financially.

He said "Network Rail’s replacement of the road bridge will sadly cause major disruption. This deal we’ve struck means that we will at least be able to deliver a permanent, major improvement for pedestrians and cyclists."

He said there is a still "a long way to go" as the council now needs to work on the design, planning and funding.
