BRANCH Bridge near Littleport has reopened after a major �1.5 million facelift.
The bridge was reopened after an extensive reconstruction project by Cambridgeshire County Council that took 26 weeks to complete.
The bridge, which carries the C134 over the River Lark between Littleport and Queen Adelaide near Ely, failed crucial safety tests and required a complete reconstruction.
The bridge, a single span, composite steel beam and concrete deck
construction, was built 50 years ago and was not designed to take the weight of
- 1 Fenland man repeatedly raped woman for 20 years
- 2 Meet the boat hire firm aiming to become perfect 'stress-free' tonic
- 3 Take a look inside £600,000 period home with 'outstanding charm'
- 4 Arson arrest after Wisbech blaze
- 5 Cambridge 'knife-wielder' arrested
- 6 Sanctuary Housing criticised over empty homes in Ely
- 7 First visit not 'a flying success' but pub deserves second chance
- 8 Santas learn how to put the Ho Ho Ho into Christmas
- 9 Woman who twice ignored 'no fly tipping' signs faces two fines
- 10 New deadline for £6m crematorium decision
The scheme is part of the council's long-term commitment to provide safe
accessible routes across the county.
Councillor Roy Pegram, cabinet member for infrastructure, said: "This new bridge will improve safety on the road and river for all users. It is purpose built to withstand today's traffic and will provide a long-term benefit for residents in the area.
