The recent closure of the Chocolate Path (now re-opened) was to allow ground testing for a new bridge over the New Cut, adjacent to the railway.
The pedestrian and cycle bridge will run from the Cumberland Road Bridge, across the River Avon, and up to the junction between Camden Road and Coronation Road on the South side of the river.
Betterbybike has more information on the planned bridge.
Here are some early impressions of how the bridge might look.
Please note that the Chocolate Path (alongside the A Bond branch line and New Cut) will be closed from 9th Feb 2015 for 4 weeks.
Cold January mornings give everything a glistening sheen of frost.
A couple of pics showing level crossing construction progress.
Stone setts kept with new parking bays to the right
Concrete complete – Almost unrecognisable from the scene a year ago!
The two steam locos were outside the shed this morning, Portbury was having her fire lit.
The recent flooding has not left the BHR untouched. This was the view on 1st February 2014. (Reproduced from the ITV website – http://www.itv.com/news/update/2014-02-01/parts-of-bristol-submerged-by-floodwater/ )
