Network Rail has announced that it is holding an information event on Tuesday, 26 November 2019 allowing people can find out more about the work to refurbish the footbridge at Welwyn Garden City station.

Work to improve the footbridge, which links the railway station and east Welwyn Garden City, will begin on Sunday, 22 December.

It will be completely refurbished with a lift and new stairs installed. The bridge will also be cleaned, repainted, resurfaced and have new lights installed.

There will be no disruption to rail services whilst this work is carried out, but there will be no access to the station via Hydeway. The alternative route via Bridge Road will be signposted.

The information event is taking place at Howard Shopping Centre on Tuesday, 26 November from 13:00 until 19:00.

Once the work is completed in late Spring 2020, it will improve passenger experience and better connect the town.
