Chislehurst Road bridge set to reopen in mid-November
CHISLEHURST Road bridge is expected to be reopened on November 16, it has been announced.
Work to replace the damaged 1958 bridge with a new one looks set to be on target after almost a year of construction.
This week workers at the site are breaking out the old road north of the bridge, laying new foundations and drainage before putting kerbs in.
Speaking to News Shopper the site manager said they are working towards the November 16 date but Bromley Council said it could not give an exact date for the reopening.
The old bridge, across the four line railway between Chislehurst and St Mary Cray stations, was closed on November 7 last year.
A Bromley Council spokesman said: "We have always said that the bridge would be closed for a year and as the closure took place last November, our target date is approaching.
"Although, it is tight, the work is on schedule and budget - readers, residents and motorists should watch this space for a precise date for a few more weeks.”
