Sharnbrook Bridge Rebuilding Finished Early
Posted on: 17/04/2015

A project to rebuild a Templars Way bridge in Sharnbrook, Bedfordshire has been completed three weeks before schedule.

These works were carried out by Network Rail as part of a £1.6bn upgrade to the rail line running between Sheffield to London St Pancras.

As the lines are becoming fully electrified over the next few years, Network Rail have begun to rebuild bridges in order to allow for overhear wires.

This specific project commenced last November, including the removal and replacement of the bridge, including deck and supports. In addition, the public footpath that stretches across the bridge was also made wider and re-surfaced.

Steve Hughes, area director of Network Rail, said: “The rebuilding of this bridge is another vital step towards us being able to provide better, faster, smoother and quieter journeys for the millions of passengers who use this essential rail artery every year.

“Finishing three weeks early is a huge bonus and is testament to the hard work of the teams involved and we hope the Sharnbrook community are pleased with the results.”
