Train passengers are facing disruption to their travel, as a new railway bridge is installed in Bristol.

The bridge, which is located at Gipsy Patch Lane, had been due to be replaced earlier this year, but construction was paused due to the Covid pandemic.

The construction team is now preparing to put the 4,260-tonne structure, which has been constructed at a nearby business park, in place.

There will be disruption to rail services between Bristol and Wales as a result of the works.

Great Western Railway said trains between Bristol Parkway and Newport would be replaced with a bus service until November 7, when trains will resume.

The bridge replacement is part of the expansion of Bristol's Metrobus network into South Gloucestershire.

Network Rail is working with South Gloucestershire Council to widen the road underneath the rail line.

Gipsy Patch Lane, which has two lanes at present, is set to have have four: one in each direction for buses and cars, plus a walking and cycling path.

Gipsy Patch Lane is set to reopen next summer.
