Over the next six weekends Network Rail will be working to install a new footbridge over the Great Western Mainline at Iver station. Rail passengers currently use a temporary footbridge at Iver Station, following the closure of the original structure.  The previous structure was demolished in January 2004.  Network Rail will work to install the new footbridge between 23.30 and 08.00 on Saturdays/Sundays in July and August.  Due to the carefully scheduled timings, the work will not affect passenger services.  Once the new bridge is open, we will remove the temporary structure.  The new footbridge is due to open to the public in mid August. Daniel Recchia, Network Rail’s Project Manager said:  “We own and maintain thousands of bridges; road, rail and footbridges across the country. This £400,000 investment will secure the future of this footbridge which is utilised by passengers at Iver station.”

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
