Eatons Bridge June 3

Eatons Footbridge Replacement

Major progress has been made at Eatons Footbridge as the new footbridge foundations have now been constructed and the soil/seed mix bagged wall has been installed to prevent the river from undermining the bridge foundations in what is an active tidal area.

On 12th June, the new footbridge was lifted into position, re-connecting the footpath between Ashurst and Henfield after several years of waiting by local residents and Public Rights of Way.

Now all that’s outstanding are the new steps, gates and landscaping to both ends of the bridge to complete the project.
