Very early on the morning of 8 November, the main span of the Milton Foot and Cycle bridge was moved into place over the A14. The contractors had built a viewing platform especially for the occasion, and it made a great vantage point to the floodlit bridge.
The £2 million bridge links Cowley Road on the Cambridge side to the Milton Country Park, and then the roundabout near Tesco. A cycle track is being constructed along Cowley Road.
The bridge is now expected to be opened some time next spring.
