The Sustrans network over the Leicester Road viaduct

Sustrans worked with Rugby Borough Council to develop a new traffic-free route which crosses the A426 and the mainline railway line and uses old railway line to link the industrial and residential areas in the north west of Rugby to the town centre. The centre piece of the scheme was the reopening of the 167-year-old, 11-arch Grade II Leicester Road Viaduct. A new ramp was also added to Black Path Bridge to provide a step-free route across the mainline railway.nikonf100-3
