Kings Bridge to reopenBedford Borough Council is refurbishing Kings Bridge, the pedestrian bridge over the River Great Ouse between the Oasis Beach Pool and the Aspects Leisure Park.

The Council has invested over £600,000 in maintenance including; painting, some steelwork refurbishment and the replacement of the worn timber deck panels with new steel decking with high grip surfacing to keep this well used bridge in operation.

Kings Bridge was in desperate need of refurbishment and we are pleased to announce these works will soon be completed. Our walking and cycling infrastructure in Bedford Borough are important and we want to continue to improve our networks and keep them in good condition for residents.

Kings Bridge will reopen next week, the photograph shows the bridge at the moment and some works have yet to be finished.
