Bridge reopens after work is completed ahead of schedule

21st March 2023


A pedestrian bridge into the popular Rickmansworth Aquadrome has reopened after vital maintenance work was completed ahead of schedule.

The pedestrian bridge off Riverside Drive, next to Ebury Play area, has undergone essential repair work to its surface. The bridge was closed to the public from Monday 20 February and pedestrians were invited to use a detour for access to and from the Aquadrome and the wider site facilities. Work was scheduled to take a full four weeks to complete, but was completed early and reopened on Monday 13 March.

Cllr Chris Lloyd, the council’s Lead Member for Leisure, said: “I am delighted that these vital works have been completed swiftly and that this key access to the Rickmansworth Aquadrome is open again. I thank residents for their understanding whilst the works were being carried out and apologise for any inconvenience the closure may have caused.”

The Aquadrome is a Local Nature Reserve, covering a 100 acres and consists of lakes, grassland and woodland. The two lakes at its centre were formed by the extraction of the gravel used in the construction of the original Wembley Stadium.
