Work is now underway to replace the existing Telford Central footbridge that connects the railway station to the town centre. The existing bridge has reached the end of its lifespan, and ino longer meets modern design standards and the access ramps to the bridge do not meet access requirements.
The current structure does not provide a welcoming entrance for people arriving to Telford by train: a journey many people coming to the International Centre make. If you’ve crossed the bridge in the cold, dark and wet, you’ll have experienced this.
The replacement bridge, due for completion by the end of 2018, will address these issues. Lifts will give suitable access to the railway station platforms, ensure the bridge meets design requirements and is easy for all to use. It will be much easier to maintain and provide a much better welcoming entrance to Telford from the station.
This is a very complex engineering project over two dual carriageways carrying around 14 million vehicles a year and a live railway with four trains per hour. The new bridge’s work begins on 30 October 2017, along with traffic management on the A442 and Rampart Way.
The A442 and Rampart Way will remain open with a 40mph speed limit in place on short sections for the vast majority of the project. This is to keep the workforce and motorists safe as foundation and construction work is carried out next to Rampart Way, some barriers are necessary. There are some overnight closures planned when large parts of the new bridge will be hoisted in by cranes during late summer 2018
