Workers begin to pull down former Lincoln service bridge

The four day demolition of an iconic disused service bridge on Brayford Wharf East has begun.

As reported previously, the University of Lincoln outlined plans to bring down the old structure due to it being “structurally unsound and beyond economic repair”.

The age and ownership of the bridge is unknown.

Network Rail previously applied for permission to demolish the bridge in 2013, but failed to do so before the application lapsed.

It is expected the overall demolition will take around four days to complete.
