Millions invested in bridge refurbishment commences

A local company has been chosen to repair a historic bridge in Heywood. The 91-year-old Queen’s Park Road bridge will undergo extensive repairs to ensure its longevity. The project, costing nearly £4 million, will involve repairing the concrete underneath the bridge, replacing the parapets, and resurfacing the road. The project is expected to take about a year to complete. During the repairs, the bridge will remain open to traffic, but occasional closures will occur. The company, BDB Special Projects Ltd, plans to invest in the local community by supporting the refurbishment of the BMX track and collaborating with nearby primary schools. Councillor Shah Wazir expressed his excitement about the project and the company’s commitment to the area. Ben Dobson, Director at BDB Special Projects Ltd, acknowledged the disruptions the repairs may cause but emphasized the importance of preserving the bridge’s integrity. The project is part of the wider regeneration of Heywood, which includes the redevelopment of Heywood Civic Centre and the construction of affordable homes.
