Section 2 - River Avon and floodplain crossing, Chesford

This is the most complex section of K2L. It requires the design and construction of a new 200 metre crossing of the River Avon and floodplain with allowance for a proposed highway scheme to upgrade the A452 between Thickthorn and Bericote roundabouts. Initial survey work has been completed and three conceptual options for a pedestrian cycle bridge have been prepared. Work is ongoing to confirm a preferred alignment and design for the bridge, ensuring that the solution is both cost effective and deliverable. The river crossing will require planning permission.
