As part of the 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 will begin work on Bromham Road Bridge on Monday 4 March 2019 supported by a partial closure of the A4280 over the bridge.
Before work to demolish and reconstruct the bridge can take place, the underground services running through it need to be removed and relocated.
Please allow more time for your journey and thank you for your patience whilst the work takes place.
