The old concrete bridge between Wimblington and Manea is due to be replaced early next year at a cost of £1 million.

Given the number of accidents we’ve seen there, and also the opportunity this will give to install barriers similar to those at Bedlam Bridge, improvement to the road surface and signage will be welcome.
