Reigate Hill Footbridge
Over a period of 6 months from July 2011 to January 2012, Reigate Hill footbridge, which carries the North Downs Way across the A217, was closed for refurbishment, with a temporary bridge in place alongside it. On the weekend of 21/22 January 2012, the A217 was closed to traffic to enable the removal of the temporary bridge and of the scaffolding used to support the platforms for the refurbishment work. This photo, taken on the Saturday of the closure, shows the newly reopened footbridge, with part of the temporary bridge just visible on the left. Some scaffolding remains, prior to removal, and plastic sheeting covers the top railing of the balustrade to provide protection as the clearance work is carried out.
