News of New Canal Footbridge at Crick Welcomed

Local Lib Dem campaigners have welcomed news that funding has been secured to provide a separate pedestrian bridge in Crick parallel to the A428 over the canal by The Moorings.
This will replace the extremely dangerous, ridiculously narrow, existing footpath on the road itself.
A wooden bridge is proposed and the design is now underway. The majority of the funding (£90,000) has come from Prologis (DIRFT III) but also with contributions from Northamptonshire County Council, windfarm developers and Crick Parish Council.
The finished bridge should hopefully be in place by the autumn of 2017.
"This is really excellent news" said Local Lib Dem Cllr Catherine Lomax "it will make it so much easier for pedestrians to cross here and access The Moorings, Marina and Garden Centre."
