Significant Milestone Achieved: Successful Removal of Dumfries Station Footbridge Paves the Way for ‘Access for All’ Project
Dumfries station’s footbridge was removed on the 16th of December. The bridge deck was lifted with the assistance of a 300-tonne crane and the retired Victorian footbridge, currently in storage awaiting a suitable new location, is making way for a modern structure designed to enhance accessibility, particularly for those with limited mobility or travelling with children.
It’s all part of the ‘Access for All’ project to provide step-free access at the station, making it easier for those with limited mobility or travelling with children, luggage or cycles to move between the platforms.
The new bridge is planned to open in August 2024.
