Green bridges

November 3, 2009

Artists impression of a green bridge (large version)

Work has started on the foundations for the Lorton Lane bridge.

This is another of the relief road’s green bridges, which are planted to help blend the bridge into the surrounding landscape and to provide a wildlife corridor. For example, bats like to follow hedges when they navigate so planting along the bridge will help them find a way across the road.

Southdown bridge and Ridgeway bridge will also be green bridges.

Lorton Lane bridge will keep access open to Lorton House, Lorton cottages and the Dorset Wildlife Trust Lorton Meadows visitor centre and nature reserve.
