Bridge work at Sainsburys.

The curved roof has now been removed from the pedestrian bridge which gives access across the River Avon to Sainsbury’s Green Park Station site.

The curved canopy has now been removed.

The bridge is being updated and work will include new lighting , handrails and redecoration – once the badly-worn canopy has been removed.

I caught sight of the new railings this morning. Hope they are high enough to stop anyone falling over into the river below.

This looks like the new rail extensions on the back of a pick up truck.

In a letter to local residents, Sainsbury’s Project Manager Colin Hope said:

‘This work will be undertaken over the course of two months and access to the store will be maintained for the majority of the time.

With the canopy gone the side rails are due to be heightened.

We have liaised with the Local Authority to ensure that working hours and practices are acceptable and we will do our best to keep disruption to a minimum. 

We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and apologise for any inconvenience caused.’

The old and badly worn canopy as it was being dismantled.

It’s hoped the bridge work will be completed next month.
