Space-age bridge open to public
11:00am Tuesday 7th August 2012 in News
A new cycling and walking bridge over Manchester Road is now open to the public.
It comes after final tests took place last week on the 210-metre long structure (pictured), which has replaced a footbridge that was demolished last year.
The tests had been expected to continue throughout this week but they were completed ahead of schedule.
Bradford Council worked with cycling charity Sustrans on the bridge project after the charity secured £50 million to provide new routes for walking and cycling from the Big Lottery Fund nationwide.
Bradford youngster Mohammad Hamzah, 11, a pupil at Newby Primary School, will open the bridge at an official ceremony on Saturday, September 1, after he won a competition.
Further details about the ceremony will be released before the event.
