New Cut’s New Bridge

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.
