Repair And Repainting At Jesus Green Footbridge

Work is about to start to repair and protect the structure of the Jesus Green footbridge in Cambridge.

The ten-week, £300,000 project begins on January 20, and involves repairs to the steel structure, grit blasting of all metalwork, repainting with a special protective paint and resurfacing of the access ramp. The metalwork will be repainted black.

During the work the Grade II listed bridge will be closed to pedestrians and cyclists as it will need to be completely enclosed in scaffolding and plastic sheeting to protect the work site from the elements.

Walkers and cycle riders will be asked to use nearby alternative bridges at Victoria Avenue and Magdalene Street – warning signs will be put up on the approach routes.
