Work resumes on White Bridge in Hartsholme Park

Work to rebuild White Bridge in Hartsholme Park in Lincoln has resumed this week.

Workers are back in the park since January 6, with the timber frame being brought at the site, ready to be placed on the new supports, once complete.

The new bridge is expected to be ready for use later on in the month.

The City of Lincoln Council closed the bridge in summer 2012, after inspections found it was unsafe for public use.

It was then completely removed from the water due to constant trespassing.

The City Council approved £65,050 to rebuild the new bridge, including new white timber decking and railings.

However, issues found later within the support stanchions in the water pushed the work back even further.
