Station Road bridge in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire will reopen tomorrow evening after Network Rail has completed the majority of work to repair and upgrade it.The project began in April 2016, and saw the 140 year old bridge rebuilt as part of Network Rail’s Railway Upgrade Plan in Nottinghamshire.
The structure has been strengthened and the road surface has been replaced to better cater for the 9,000 vehicles which use it every day.Rob McIntosh, route managing director for Network Rail said: “We are delighted to have completed the improvements to Station Road bridge.
“It is a vital transport link for the people of Hucknall and we believe this upgrade will increase its reliability. We’re really grateful to all residents for their patience and understanding whilst this work was carried out.”Members of the Network Rail project team will remain on site until November to carry out finishing touches to the upgrades.
