Works are due to start on Monday, August 18, to repair, maintain and clean up Riverside Cycle Bridge in Cambridge.

The £15,000 scheme will take around two weeks and will include repairs to the deck, maintaining the aluminium planks to the pedestrian walkway, general repairs and removing graffiti and algae from the paintwork.

The bridge which links St Andrews Road, Chesterton and Riverside, in Abbey will remain open and work will be carried out off peak between 9am to 4pm.

Works have been set for school summer holidays when the bridge is the least busy to reduce disruption to people using it. On average around there are around 2700 cycle and 1,000 pedestrian trips across the bridge a day.

While work is carried out cyclists and pedestrians should be prepared to share narrow lanes and may have to wait while contractor carries out some operations. The river will also be restricted with a work pontoon to carry out the deck repairs.
