WORK on the long awaited £6million footbridge at St Neots railway station is due to start next month.
The bridge will be open 24 hours and will allow disabled access to every platform – putting an end to two decades of isolation for wheelchair users at the station.
It is also estimated that the development will shave 15 minutes off the journey from Loves Farm housing development to the railway station.
The new bridge will incorporate lifts to all platforms as well as to the station car park and the Loves Farm housing development.
The £6million project will be funded through a combination of section 106 funding obtained by Huntingdonshire District Council from the Loves Farm developers, the Department for Transport’s Access for All scheme, and Network Rail.

Work on the bridge will begin on Saturday May 4 and will take a year to complete.
No disruption will be caused to rail services.
