Albrighton Residents Invited To Drop-In Event To Find Out More About Vital Bridge Replacement

Published on : Friday, February 17, 2017

Network RailLocal residents are invited to a drop-in event to hear more on vital bridge replacement work taking place in Albrighton this spring.

 

The Grade II listed bridge at Albrighton station was originally built around 1880 and had part of the structure replaced over 80 years ago. Most of the bridge is approaching the end of its useful and safe life and will have to be replaced. The cast iron parapets will be retained and refurbished and overall the work will ensure that the bridge lasts a further 120 years.

 

The drop-in event will take place on Monday 27 February 2017 between 4pm and 7pm at Red House, High Street, Albrighton, WV7 3LU. Representatives from Network Rail who will be carrying out the work will be there to provide more information and answer any questions that residents may have.

 

Dominic Mottram from Network Rail said “We recognise the work to install this new bridge will cause some disruption and thank people in advance for their patience. This bridge needs to be replaced and the renewal is part of our Railway Upgrade Plan to deliver a better and more reliable railway.”

 

In order to complete this work the following closures will be in place:

  • Station Road will be closed under the bridge from 20th March to 29th April
  • Albrighton Station will closed from 8th April to 24th April
  • No trains running between 15th and 18th

 

During that time a full, signed diversionary route and a rail replacement service will be in operation.
