Bridge Replacement Work Complete In Dalston

Construction News Image
Network Rail has completed work to replace a bridge on Kingsbury Road in Dalston.

A key route over the railway has fully reopened after the poor condition of the old bridge meant that it needed to be closed and replaced to keep everyone's journeys safe and reliable. Built around 1916, it was made using iron girders, which had become extensively corroded over time.

Now that the new bridge is open, pedestrians and cyclists can cross the railway at this location again, with diversions having been removed. Cycleway 1, which links Tottenham and Waltham Cross with the City, has returned to its original Kingsbury Road route. The bridge will remain closed to motorists, as it has been since the 1970s.

Underneath the structure, railway lines take London Overground trains between Canonbury and Dalston Kingsland / Dalston Junction stations. Trains were able to keep running for most of the rebuild project, with occasional closures of the line needed to allow major milestones to be achieved.

Network Rail carried out the work with its contractor, J Murphy and Sons, and in partnership with Islington Council and Hackney Council.

Engineers demolished the old bridge over Christmas 2023 and then lifted in the replacement with a crane over the last weekend of January 2024.
