The decision to knock down the bridge came from engineers worried about the structure’s continued deteriorating condition after it was deemed unsafe for both drivers and pedestrians.

A public transport study is now considering how to improve access into the town centre, including better linking the railway station, proposals for a new bus interchange and how to provide more active travel opportunities.
