About the scheme

Victoria Road Bridge waterproofing and resurfacing

Waterproofing and resurfacing works on Victoria Road Bridge have now been completed. This involved removing and replacing the waterproof membrane on the bridge deck and installing a new road surface with the support of the closure of the bridge. Repairs and resurfacing works were also carried out on Victoria Road (between the junction of Springfield Road to New Street), to improve the carriageway. 

Pedestrian/cycling crossing

As part of the works, the existing pedestrian facilities have been upgraded to a wider toucan crossing to aid both pedestrians and cyclists, we can now advise that works to the new signal equipment and tactile paving were successfully installed in September 2023.

Waterloo Lane

As part of our Active Travel Fund plans to make the route safer, greener and healthier, improvements to riverside cycle routes from Victoria Road to Waterloo Lane will be constructed following the main works on Victoria Road.  These works will be advertised when a work programme has been confirmed.
