New Brayford level crossing footbridge designs submitted

Network Rail has submitted new designs for a footbridge at the Brayford Wharf level crossing in Lincoln.

These are the second designs for the Brayford footbridge, after the first designs were reviewed.

The rail company also wants to put an accessible bridge at the High Street level crossing, but designs for that bridge have not been finalised.

Phil Verster, route managing director for Network Rail said: “This application is an important milestone as we seek to reduce risk at the level crossings in Lincoln city centre.

“We have taken into account the feedback we received following our public event in October and feel we have developed a quality design which is in keeping with, and sympathetic to its surroundings.

“We are acutely aware of this need and continue to seek the best possible solution for the High Street level crossing. We are in discussions with the owners of 179 High Street to see if it is possible to redevelop this building as part of the footbridge design. As soon as possible we will bring those designs to a public event for further discussion.”
