MAJOR work to build another bridge across a busy city road has moved forward.

Workers are busy laying the foundations for a new foot and cycle bridge across the A4440 Hams way as the latest addition of the huge Southern Link Road project.

The bridge has already been put together near to the road and will be lifted into place in September.

Cyclists and pedestrians will be able to use the new bridge over the A4440 connecting existing and improved paths and cycle routes.

The new bridge is part of the fourth and final phase of the work to dual the A4440 Southern Link Road between the Ketch and Powick roundabouts.

Work restarted in June to install the new Broomhall Way bridge across the A4440 after it had been halted because of the coronavirus lockdown.

Construction was suspended by Worcestershire County Council in March along with several other major projects.

Since then important work to Powick Viaduct has been carried out including the installation of dozens of heavy concrete beams to support the Southern Link Road once the extra lanes are added.

As part of the final phase, work will be carried out on Powick roundabout with improvements made to each exit.

Existing cycling crossings will be replaced by the new Hams Way bridge.

The Broomhall Way foot and cycle bridge will connect hundreds of new homes and commercial units to the south of the Southern Link Road with Power Park in St Peter’s and the rest of the city.

Developer St Modwen has permission to build 255 homes as part of a major urban extension of Worcester as well as the bridge across the A4440, commercial and business space and public open space.
