New footbridge at Foxcovert Road crossing, Glinton
Foxcovert Road - also spelled as Fox Covert Road - links Werrington on the northern periphery of Peterborough with the villages of Glinton and Peakirk. The former level crossing spans the railway line between Peterborough and Lincoln via Spalding and Sleaford. The crossing was closed to motor traffic many years ago but remained accessible to pedestrians and cyclists.
Following a long-running campaign by local councillors and residents in response to a fatal accident at the crossing in 2009, Network Rail announced in April 2013 that a footbridge would be constructed at the site. The bridge was inaugurated in September 2014. It incorporates sloped sections for cyclists as the route is used by pupils cycling from Werrington to attend Arthur Mellows Village College in Glinton.
