From Monday 4 March, Network Rail teams will begin work to upgrade Bromham Road bridge in Bedford, just north of Bedford Central station. Ahead of the full replacement of the bridge, underground utilities services running through the bridge need to be removed and relocated. This work will require a partial closure of the A4280 over the bridge.
By 2020 the bridge will have been demolished and reconstructed in order to allow for the safe clearance of the overhead line equipment underneath the bridge, ahead of the railway line being fully electrified from London to Bedford via Kettering and Corby.
In advance of work commencing, Network Rail is holding a public information event where residents and businesses can find out more about the work, and Network Rail representatives will be on hand to answer any questions. This will take place this Friday 22 February between 15:00 and 19:00 at the Park Inn Bedford, 2 St Mary’s St, Bedford, MK42 0AR, and you or your representative would be very welcome to attend.
If you are unable to attend but would like more information please do contact me and I would happy to arrange a face to face meeting with your parish members.

I hope this information on the planned partial closure of Bromham Road bridge is helpful, but please do not hesitate to get in touch should you require any further information.
