  • Overview

A new footbridge over Harrogate's railway line has been provided at Dragon Junction in a Partnership between North Yorkshire County Council, Network Rail and Harrogate Borough Council.

This new footbridge is fully accessible for pedestrians, wheelchairs, pushchairs and cyclists. It links Harrogate Borough Council's cycle route from Bilton to the town centre and provides easier access to Granby High School from Bilton.

The existing bridge was difficult to use because there were steps at both ends.
The footbridge has been designed in consultation with the three partners and was constructed by Britcon Engineering Services for C Spencer of Barrow upon Humber in Lincolnshire.
