Walton Bridge to Go Ahead

Rate this item
(6 votes)

Walton BridgeFollowing the last election and the uncertainty of publicly funded projects, it is now confirmed that the £32m Thames Road Bridge at Walton has been approved.

The permanent arch road bridge will be the first new road crossing over The Thames in 20 years. The structure, which will replace the two "temporary" bridges connecting Walton and Shepperton, is due to be completed by the summer of 2013.

The Department of Transport will invest £23.8m with the remainder coming from Surrey County Council. The Authority expects work to start in January.

    Bloody brilliant and about time. Only been waiting since the war after all... but WHEN will it be finished? After 50 years of driving over the last two "temporary" bridges I hope I live to drive over and pass under a proper bridge. Unlike the "eco" park it even looks good.
