Footbridge at Cramlington station

Work to commence on Cramlington station footbridge

Work is set to begin this week at Cramlington railway station to revamp and refurbish the footbridge at the station.

On Thursday 25th November the footbridge will be taken off-site for inspection.

Whilst off-site the footbridge will be grit-blasted to remove rust and old paint.

After this work will then focus on carrying out any repairs which may be needed and repainting the footbridge.

The footbridge will then be put back into place at Cramlington station where new handrails and stair treads will be installed.

The drainage on the bridge will also be improved.

The work will ultimately cost £590,000 and will ensure that the footbridge remains fir for purpose for years to come.

The footbridge will be closed from 1st December until late-March whilst the work takes place.

Network Rail emphasised the importance of the work at Cramlington station.

Sarah Reid, Route Director for Network Rail’s East Coast route said: “[The work] will help to future proof Cramlington railway station and create a nicer environment for everyone who uses the station.

This work does require the footbridge to be closed for over three months and we are sorry for any inconvenience which this causes.

“We are working closely with Northern to make sure that passengers can still move around the station easily.

“We’d like to thank all those using Cramlington station during this time for their patience.”
