Rother Valley Bridge Goes In!

Despite snowy conditions, the Bridge Lift over the River Rother took place this morning, the Rail bridge having been put in overnight. Here's a few pix, courtesy of Sustrans Ranger Morris Shapiro...

Council officers tell us that local residents have been asking for better walking and cycling links between Killamarsh and Halfway for over 20 years, so it's great that their persistence has finally paid off.
