A film showing the building of the new footbridge at Shoreham has been released.

The film features the construction of the new multi million-pound footbridge, which will span the River Adur and link Shoreham Beach to Shoreham town centre. The bridge will also provide a valuable cycle link to and from the town.

In the West Sussex County Council video, there is footage of the foundations being installed on the river bank, as well as shots of the old pedestrian bridge in the last few weeks before its closure.

There is also film of the shuttle bus, which is carrying more than a 1,000 passengers a day. The service will remain in operation until the new bridge opens to the public in August this year.

County cabinet member Pieter Montyn said: “Work on the new bridge has attracted a considerable number of sightseers, who have been following its construction with interest. This film will give a wider audience a chance to see how the work is progressing. It will also be a valuable historical record.”
