Black Path footbridge

Warwickshire County Council are pleased to announce that Black Path Footbridge in Rugby has been reopened on 30th June 2009 following reconstruction of the South Span over Web Ellis Bussiness Park. This is a multispan bridge over the West Coast Main Line and provides a link between Wood Street on the south side and the Web Ellis Industrial Estate on the North.

The project also boasts a new approach ramp which brings this section of the structure up to current standards for inclusion for the mobility impaired. Similar improvements to the North Access to the structure are being progressed by Rugby Borough Council and Sustrains. This will mean that ultimately the whole bridge will be a shared cycle and pedestrian facility.
