A bridge over the railway line at Grove Lane in Barrow upon Soar, Leicestershire has reopened to pedestrian traffic.
The bridge partially collapsed earlier this month (1 August 2016).
A safe walking route has now been established on the bridge. The route is protected by a 2.4m high fence.
“This was a significant incident and a lot of work has gone into securing the bridge and getting it ready to be used. I’m pleased that pedestrians can now access the bridge again and thank those living nearby for bearing with us while the work has taken place,” said Network Rail area director Gary Walsh.
“We have been in regular contact with those living near the bridge and will continue to let them know about the future plans.”
Reopening the road to vehicle traffic is the next step, with designs currently under review. The four railway lines that run beneath the bridge are operating at normal speed.
