Documenting the old Destructor.

The old Destructor Bridge.
The old Destructor Bridge.

People using the towpath on the Upper Bristol Road side of the River Avon and where it passed under the old Destructor Bridge should be warned that access will be lost from September 21st.

That’s when contractors get down to the serious business of excavating to provide bank supports for the new pedestrian and cycle bridge that is going to be strung across the River Avon at this point .

Crest Nicholson – who are developing the Western Riverside – called in local production company Sunflower Film and Creative Agency Limited to produce two films – available on YouTube – which document both the dismantling of the old Destructor Bridge and site preparations for the construction of a new pedestrian and cyclist replacement.

Do follow the links below for Parts 1 & 2.

My thanks to Crest Nicholson and Sunflower for this. Find out more about the local production company on
