There will be signposted diversions for motorists and cyclists - and one footpath will remain open for pedestrians.

Earlier this month, the Bromham Road bridge reopened to motorists following its closure as part of the £1.5billion Midland Main Line Upgrade.

The road has been closed since June last year to allow Network Rail to demolish and rebuild the structure at a raised height. This work enabled the line from London to Kettering and Corby via Bedford to be electrified.

Gavin Crook, principal programme sponsor for Network Rail, said: “The work at Bromham Road bridge is a key part of the Midland Main Line Upgrade, which is a major project which will bring significant benefits for passengers.

“There is still some work left to complete and we will work hard to keep the impact of this work to a minimum. We'd like to thank residents for their continued patience whilst we carry out the final stages of work to the bridge."
