Network Rail is inviting residents to an information event on Thursday 22 November to find out more about on-going work to build a new footbridge over the railway at Brayford Wharf in Lincoln.

Work to install the new footbridge began on Monday 29 October and Brayford Wharf East Road is now closed to motorists until Monday 6 May to allow construction to take place.

The footbridge will improve safety and provide pedestrians and cyclists with 24/7 access across a busy railway. The level crossing will remain open, but the new footbridge will provide a new route across the railway for those who do not wish to wait at the crossing.

An information session will be held between 15:00 and 19:00 on Thursday 22 November at the site office on Brayford Wharf East, at which Network Rail will answer residents’ questions and provide further details about the work.  

Anyone who can’t make the event but would like further information should contact the Network Rail National Helpline on 0345 7 11 41 41.
