As part of its Midland Main Line Upgrade we are planning to reconstruct Bromham Road Bridge in Bedford.
Bromham Road Bridge is a two span brick arch bridge that lies to the north of Bedford Central station and carries the 2-lane single carriageway Bromham Road over the Midland Main Line.
This bridge has been identified as having insufficient clearance for overhead line equipment (electrified wires carrying 25,000 volts) to safely pass beneath it, and therefore the bridge needs to be partially demolished and then reconstructed. To enable demolition of the existing bridge and accommodate the reconstruction of a modern replacement, we need to secure additional land and air rights near to the structure.
We intend to apply to the Secretary of State for Transport for a Transport and Works Act Order in June 2018 as part of its London to Corby Project.
