MetroBus Bridge Construction on Winterstoke Road

Construction of the MetroBus Bridge

Construction work on the MetroBus bridge on Winterstoke Road seems to be progressing at a pace. Since I last photographed the bridge in the middle of January I have been past a couple more timexs and the bridge has now extended over the Portbury freight railway line towards Colliter’s Brook.

Further into the centre is the Ashton Avenue Swing bridge that spans the River Avon in Cumberland Basin. This bridge is also being refurbished as part of the MetroBus works.
