Railway Bridge Refurbishment in Garston due to Begin Next Week

Published on : Saturday, March 30, 2019

Network RailResidents, cyclists and motorists in Liverpool are being advised that work to rebuild Church Road railway bridge in Garston will begin in April.

 

As part of Network Rail’s Great North Rail Project, the essential renewal work will include the removal and replacement of the bridge deck which supports the railway above.

 

To complete the work safely, Church Road will be closed at the railway bridge from the evening of Friday 5 April until late evening on Sunday 30 June.

 

During this time a free shuttle bus will operate from one side of the bridge to the other via Banks Road and Speke Road between 7:10 am and 8:10 pm to help residents access local shops and services.

 

For more information about the shuttle bus and the work, residents are being invited to meet with Network Rail between 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm on Wednesday 3 April at Woodcutters Social Club in Garston.

 

We have also written to residents who live close to the railway bridge.

 

Joel Farrell, scheme project manager for Network Rail, said: “This essential refurbishment forms part of our Great North Rail Project and will ensure that Church Road bridge will remain safe and viable for years to come.

 

“To deliver our work safely, we will need to close the road beneath the bridge while the existing structure is dismantled and replaced.

 

“We are grateful for the local community’s patience while our work plans have been finalised and are keen to meet residents again to talk to them about the bridge upgrade and the proposed shuttle bus.”

 

During the road closure, a clearly signposted diversion will be in place for motorists and cyclists.
