Rt Hon David Evennett MP has welcomed the re-opening of Network Rail’s footbridge in Gipsy Road, Welling. It had been closed for the past few months as it had been deemed unsafe.
Mr Evennett said “I am pleased that the footbridge is open and safe again as its sudden closure and the lack of information provided caused inconvenience for my constituents. I made strong representations for this work to be brought forward.
“The bridge itself will be replaced in 2018/9 and I shall work closely with Network Rail to ensure that disruption is minimal and can be completed sooner rather than later.”
