New Shoreham footbridge takes shape with September opening date looming
2:30pm Thursday 11th July 2013 in News
The new Shoreham Footbridge is finally shaping up as it nears its completion date in a couple of months.
The £10 million bridge, which will be called the Adur Ferry Bridge following a public vote last month, should be open to the public by mid- September.
Councillor Mike Mendoza, chairman of Adur District Council, said: “It is brilliant that it is nearly ready and we hope it will be open to the public by the second week of September.
“It’s going to be a huge benefit to Shoreham residents. It will be a lot safer for people crossing and it’s wider than the old bridge so cyclists will be able to cross easily as well.
“It’s glass, so people can take in the views around them, which you couldn’t do before as the old bridge was made of concrete.”
An official opening of the Adur Ferry Bridge is being planned for November.
