Pais­ley foot­bridge to be re­placed

Rail (UK) - - News -

Net­work Rail is to re­place a life­ex­pired foot­bridge in Pais­ley.

Work be­gins on the £1.2 mil­lion struc­ture on De­cem­ber 10. It in­volves pil­ing and cre­at­ing new foun­da­tions, as well as re­moval of the old bridge and in­stal­la­tion of the new pre­fab­ri­cated struc­ture.

Con­struc­tion will take place in a com­bi­na­tion of day and night shifts, but not be­tween Christ­mas and the New Year. Buses will re­place trains in the area on Satur­days and Sun­days through­out Jan­uary.

The bridge is due to be com­pleted by March 2019. The ex­ist­ing Arkle­ston foot­bridge will be closed from De­cem­ber 14, with pedes­tri­ans di­verted via Arkle­ston Road to the east of the site.
