Birse lands footbridge scheme

Balfour Beatty-owned Birse Civils has secured a £6.2 million contract from Buckinghamshire County Council to develop new pedestrian and transport infrastructure.

Birse will demolish a footbridge over a railway in the Aylesbury town centre, replacing it with a new 280m bridge, built on piled foundations, for pedestrians and cyclists.

The project - the fourth phase of the Aylesbury Public Transport Hub project - also involves the development of a bus lane, connecting the town's central bus and train stations.

Surfacing and kerbing work, landscaping, and upgrades to roadways is also part of the scheme, which is expected to take about a year.
