Plans for a new footbridge across a railway line which cuts through the centre of Lincoln have been approved. Network Rail is installing the bridge on Brayford Wharf East, one of two places where the railway line cuts straight through the centre of Lincoln.

It means pedestrians and shoppers will no longer be held up by trains. Talks are also underway to try and find a solution for the other crossing on Lincoln High Street - where a bridge could also be installed in the future.
