Save the Hackbridge railway bridges from demolition
The campaign to save the 100 Acre and Irrigation (above) bridges over the railway north of Hackbridge is growing apace. These have been earmarked for demolition on the late May Bank Holiday by Network Rail despite the key role they both can play in providing public access to the newly restored Beddington Farmlands when it opens.
Nearly 700 people have signed our petition calling on Network Rail to call off the bridges demolition and allow Wandle Valley Regional Park Trust and Sutton Council to find a long term solution which secures their role in providing public access to Beddington Farmlands. Add you name here or by clicking the box below and share the petition with others. Our petition can also be signed in shops in Hackbridge as a result of local initiative.
We have secured helpful coverage in the Sutton Guardian. Sutton councillors have been alerted and local MP Tom Brake has written to Network Rail. Both Hackbridge and Beddington Corner Neighbourhood Development Group and Beddington North Neighbourhood Forum are part of the campaign. Wandle Valley Regional Park Trust is in discussions with Sutton Council and we are urging a stay of execution while a long term solution is found. All this needs your help so please do what you can to spread the word and grow the petition.
