Note the date ... so it's nearly five years on, and the local papers (as well as the borough) announce that the road and bridge have been granted planning approval (no. 172934).

Since approval, work on this bridge and a little bit of linking road has proceeded with very little reporting. Apart from none of us going out much, it's probably relevant that it was hard to get there - no road access. But it did open on 24th January, as unreported in the local paper.

As built, it replaces the level crossing in Waterloo Road, which was already closed for the new junction (roundabout) to be built but that will now be permanent. However, that's not a route of any use to me going to or from home, so it'd need a special visit to get there. Another bit of de facto ring road is planned that would make it more useful, but that has not even got to the full planning application stage.

Went up over the new Waterloo Road bridge which is open, didn't go further (having just done a circuit of Bracknell). The Easthampstead Road crossing had a massive tail back, so I assume that the Waterloo Road project isn't finished.
