The Crab and Winkle Line Trust in partnership with Canterbury City Council will be holding an exhibition of proposals for two new bridges in Whitstable as part of the extension of the Crab and Winkle footpath and cycleway. Come to St. Peters Hall, 154 Cromwell Road, Whitstable on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd June between 1pm and 5pm to find out more.
The scheme will include a new bridge over Teynham Road similar to the original bridge that carried the world’s first passenger steam railway. We are also proposing a bridge over Old Bridge Road and the railway so that the path can extend all the way to The Sidings and on towards the Harbour. The finished path will be accessible and street lit on winter evenings.
The proposed new bridges are lower than previous designs that were given Planning Permission in 2011. New Planning Permission will be sought later this year but before then the Trust would like to show you our plans and hear your views.
Canterbury City Council is also intending to start construction on extending the path further along the embankment in Whitstable later this year. Details of the landscaping of the paths, screening and street lighting will be on display at the exhibition and designers on hand to discuss the details
