People walked across Ebbsfleet Garden City’s new bridge on 31st July as it opened to the public for the first time.

Springhead Bridge will reduce the reliance on the car for residents at Springhead Park and they will be able to walk to the station on average in eight minutes compared with around 30 minutes before.  This is an important milestone in the evolution of Ebbsfleet Garden City, connecting communities and encouraging lower carbon transport options.

Construction work, a collaboration between Ebbsfleet Development Corporation, Balfour Beatty and the Scape Group, started in May 2018 with construction with residents closely following the project at each stage, thanks to drone footage carried out and published by Ebbsfleet Development Corporation.

Julia Gregory, Director of Projects with Ebbsfleet Development Corporation, which has built the £16million bridge, said: “This bridge will provide an easy route on a dedicated walking lane for residents of Springhead Park who want to leave their car at home and get to Ebbsfleet International and the future Ebbsfleet Central Area.  It will also provide a cycle track and access for all vehicles including a new Fastrack bus route. We’re delighted the bridge has been so well received by residents.”

As well as a dedicated walking and cycling route the bridge has also opened to the first vehicles.
