Fulscot Bridge now open.

Update from network rail:

“Just a quick note to let you know that Fulscot Bridge opened this afternoon at 4.30pm. I have attached photos of the bridge taken today.

We are very conscious that the long closure has been very disruptive for local residents and we appreciate your continued patience in bearing with us whilst we completed the work.

A new mobile friendly version of the Thames Valley Police website is now available which will enhance the site and services available for smartphone users.
The website contains a wealth of useful information and advice, including our interactive virtual neighbourhood, details of your local neighbourhood team and what they’ve been up to, and online crime and incident reporting, which will now be even easier to access when you’re out and about.
