Bumper crowds and celebrities expected at Hennessy Gold Cup - and a new bridge too

THE bridge linking Newbury Racecourse with Hambridge Road is set to be opened on a daily basis from Tuesday.

The bridge over the railway line is currently open to racecourse traffic on race days only.

However, from Tuesday morning it is to be opened permanently, becoming the main access to the Racecourse buildings, including the Nuffield gym.

Bollards will be in place next to the Rocking Horse Nursery, preventing access to and from the Stroud Green end of the development, although gym members and Racecourse vehicles will still be allowed through.

For more on the opening of the bridge and all the other news from across West Berkshire pick up a copy of this week's Newbury Weekly News, out now.

    WBC you spineless half wit's. So even the residents of the racecourse can't use the bridge... FFS Get a Grip. When can we vote this lot out? I have zero confidence in them.

    This simply beggars belief! West Berkshire Council highways department should INSIST that this route be open to all whilst the Boundary Road bridge is closed for replacement. There is no possible excuse for this eletist stand by the racecourse and its developers.
