Q&A sessions set for Lincoln Brayford footbridge build

Network Rail is inviting people in Lincoln to ask questions about their work to build a new footbridge at the Brayford Wharf level crossing.

An information event is being held on Thursday, November 22 at the site office, Brayford Wharf East, where residents can ask any questions.

The rail company will also provide further details about their work at the event, which is being held from 3pm to 7pm.

As previously reported, work to build the new footbridge started in October and the road is expected to be closed for six months.

Designs: Stem Architects

The plans were initially refused by the City of Lincoln Council, whose planning committee felt that the removal of two lift shafts restricted access for disabled people.

Network Rail appealed the decision with the Planning Inspectorate, stating initial designs were “too expensive” and adding that people who cannot use the stairs will still be able to use the crossing as normal.

Anyone who will not be able to make the event but has questions should contact the National Rail helpline on 0345 711 4141.
