It’s possible that the new Sergeant’s Farm Bridge, which links Shire Way to Wapley Common, may open as soon as tomorrow (Sat 25 April).
If all goes to plan tomorrow, we understand that Murphys have Network Rail’s permission to remove the temporary bridge overnight Saturday/Sunday. Fingers crossed…
They have been installing the new boundary fence for the Network Rail compound. At least in the short term the path from the bridge will emerge at the zebra crossing, then people will be able to walk along the short length of tarmac on the edge of Shire Way and then follow the path back into the ashtrack.
It is hoped to organise a modest celebration event in the near future, possibly involving a local school. We’ll keep you posted.
