Bridging the gap

Tue 4 August 2015, 10:49 am

A cycle and pedestrian bridge linking Caversham to Reading town centre is due for completion in September 2015.

The remaining eight steel sections of the 120 metre-long bridge, with a 68-metre span over the River Thames, were put in place in July.

Reading’s pedestrian and cycle bridge will be located to the east of Fry’s Island, between the existing Caversham and Reading Bridges. It will provide a route for pedestrians and cyclists from Caversham into the town centre, and to and from Reading Station.

The bridge is being funded through the council’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
