Funding secured for Thornaby station footbridge

A £1.3m project to replace an ageing footbridge at a Teesside rail station has been confirmed by council bosses.

Funding for the scheme to replace Thornaby's 120-year-old footbridge has come from central government, Network Rail and Stockton Council.

A spokesman for Stockton Council said construction work was expected to begin later this year.

The spokesman said a final design for the long-awaited bridge was still being worked out.
