Network Rail is holding an information event on Tuesday, 26 November, where people can find out more about the work to refurbish the footbridge at Welwyn Garden City station.

Work to improve the footbridge, which links the railway station and east Welwyn Garden City, will begin on Sunday, 22 December. It will be completely refurbished with a lift and new stairs installed. The bridge will also be cleaned, repainted, resurfaced and have new lights installed.

There will be no disruption to rail services whilst this work is carried out, but there will be no access to the station via Hydeway. The alternative route via Bridge Road will be signposted.

The information event is taking place at Howard Shopping Centre on Tuesday, 26 November from 13:00 until 19:00.

Passengers and residents will have the chance to speak to representatives from Network Rail and Welwyn Hatfield Council and find out more about the work.

Once the work is completed in late Spring 2020, it will improve passenger experience and better connect the town.
