This is the bridge crossing Shutterton Brook twixt the Persimmon site and Secmaton Farm so that the road linking the Gatehouse area through to Sainsbury's roundabout can be built.
Seems it was lengthy negotiations concerning land in the Secmaton Farm area that has held up this project.
This road and bridge were identified as being needed nearly 10 years ago but because of delays more money is now needed because costs have gone up.
Perhaps it will open 10 years to the day it was identified as being needed?
