Children and families travelling on foot between St Nicholas Church School and the Heritage Park housing development in Radstock can now enjoy a more convenient way to do the school run thanks to the installation of a new footbridge.
The bridge installed over the river by Bath & North East Somerset Council was officially opened today (July 13) and is part of the regeneration of the former railway land carried out by Norton Radstock Regeneration Company (NRR).
The bridge was funded by a section 106 developer contribution and delivered by the council as part of the Linden Homes Heritage Park housing development.
The school now owns and maintains the bridge which provides another entrance, enables residents to walk safely to and from the site and helps reduce unnecessary car journeys. The bridge will be open at school drop-off and pick-up times only for pupils and their families travelling to and from school.
