New Thames bridge at Reading

The Secretary of State for Transport has upheld the approval for a pedestrian/cycle bridge across the River Thames at Reading.

The controversial scheme involves building the crossing between Reading Bridge and Fry’s Island. It will link Christchurch Meadows on the left bank with the towpath on the right, the town side.

In April there was concern raised about felling 30 year old trees on the meadows and  a Green councillor raised objections.

The Thames Path will gain little except more local walkers enjoying a circular walk from Caversham.
