A post on RailUK Forums mentions a new footbridge at the country end of Castle Cary station, seen there yesterday. It is not on Street View or Apple Maps. Dies anyone know anything about it.

The new footbridge is temporary, erected for this years Glastonbury festival but obviously not needed. It is being left in place whilst the existing footbridge is renovated.

Will the footpath up into the village be closed during renovation of the existing footbridge?

I don't know, but probably a temporary closure would be required. Nothing on the Somerset CC web site at present but I don't think that the works to the footbridge are programmed yet.
