Upgrade project begins in Barnsley

Engineers have started work to upgrade a bridge over the railway in Dodworth, Barnsley.

The work, Network Rail said, will ensure it remains fit for purpose for many years into the future.

Teams are on site and strengthening the footbridge. They will repaint the structure, repair steel work, install anti-slip decking and add a new handrail on the bridge, which spans the line between Dodworth and Silkstone Common.


To ensure safety on the £60,000 project, the bridge will be closed whilst the work takes place. A diversion route via Station Road will be in place until the project completes on Friday, 11 February.

Matt Rice, route director for Network Rail’s North and East Route, said: “We know this bridge is commonly used by walkers and this project will make sure this route can continue to be enjoyed for years to come.

“During the work, a temporary diversion route will be in place and we’re sorry for any inconvenience this causes. We’re looking forward to the work completing next month and for the community to begin using the new and improved footbridge.”
