Connect 2 Killamarsh Progress

The contractor has made good progress on the embankments and bridge foundations & abutments over the last
month, but of course now we are heading into the bad weather.

The river bridge lift is now scheduled for Sunday 15th January.  At the moment, it looks like it will be around 7am in the morning (following the overnight rail bridge lift). 

Sustrans are going to issue a press release about the River Rother bridge lift and there could be a bike ride, or even a chartered tram for cyclists, to watch the event. 

SCC is looking to advance some of planned 'Phase2' works into this financial year, although we're still waiting on cost to know for certain. The first part of these works would be vegetation - small tree branches, shrubs, brambles - clearance along the corridor of the Phase2 route and there could be scope for a team of Rangers/ volunteers to help with the clearance work (or a defined section of the clearance work) in mid-late January.
