Going, going, gone!


The Forge Island development has reached another milestone as the old footbridge across the River Don has been removed to make way for a brand-new walkway!

The new pedestrian bridge will transport visitors to the leisure scheme on Forge Island, as well as connecting to Riverside Gardens and the wider town centre.

Keep up to date with the latest Forge Island and Town Centre regeneration works on the town centre website here.
