Many people have been confused by what appears to be steps over the Ridgway bridge, and wondered how cyclists will be able to cross over it.
Good news, we’re not bonkers – they’re not steps!
The foundations for the bridge were formed as a series of layers of concrete one on top of the other, and the outside edges of these layers do look like steps from a distance.
To create the final arched shape, the concrete foundation will be filled over with earth to bring the ground level up. The blue ‘paint’ recently applied is a waterproofing layer.
The picture below is an artists impression of what a finished green bridge looks like.
