Bridge End

Yesterday I walked over the new bridge.

The temporary walkway has been closed and they are sending pedestrians along the new road.

Pavement is in place to the south, and white lines have appeared in anticipation of traffic.
You can stand on the bridge and see the fire station and the A259.
With just a few coping stones and fencing to be finished, it feels like the bridge might be open for cars in a few more days.....or weeks.
I'd rather like an official opening ceremony......a local celebrity or politician with scissors, a ribbon and a brass band to mark the end of our daily walks to see the diggers and our daily diverted drive through the Downs. Will this happen? I very much doubt it. We will wake one morning to find that we can unexpectedly drive again directly to London Road. I will keep you posted.
