See the new Forge Island footbridge installed


This summer, a striking new pedestrian bridge was lifted into place at Forge Island, linking the flagship scheme to the town centre.

The Forge Island development is being delivered in partnership by the Council and Muse Places.

The bridge will offer a vital connection from the town centre to the new family-friendly leisure destination – as well as a link to the town’s remarkable engineering heritage.

Watch the video here to see the milestone moment the bridge was lifted into place!
