#Sydenham Park railway footbridge update #se26 18 February 2014

Due to delays to securing an Asset Protection Agreement with Network Rail to allow work on the footbridge, repairs are unlikely to take place until August and September 2014.

The site was investigated in October 2013 and changes to the proposed designs were requested. These new designs have now been completed, but fabrication of the new bridge will not start until the APA is signed.

Improvements to the steps will follow, but are subject to separate funding and approvals. Replacing the footbridge deck will require the bridge to be closed for one weekend.

Thank you for posting this, Alex. The date of August/September sounds like wishful thinking to me. Until you have a signed APA from Network Rail, you simply can’t know the date. Have you seen the new design and is it suitable for bike transfer from one side to the other – this is a bike route after all.
