Exhibition of Bridge Designs for Darnall Residents

Designs for a new 'iconic' bridge over the Parkway into Sheffield can be viewed at the Darnall Forum Offices on Main Road in Darnall until Thursday of this week. The five distinctive designs are for a new footbridge which would mark the gateway between Sheffield and Rotherham. Some use solar powered light as a feature at night. One uses Sheffield's industrial heritage as a starting point for the design. The winning design will begin construction next year. The bridge will carry horse riders, cyclists and pedestrians.

MP Clive Betts is pictured with local residents looking at one of the designs. The Darnall Forum offices are open to the public from 9.30 until 3.30 each weekday. They are at 245 Main Road, which is the former Rose and Crown public house.
