Timelapse video marks bridge construction

A timelapse video showing the construction of the highly-anticipated Springhead Bridge has been created to mark the progress over the last year.

Footage of the work has been shot using a drone for the bridge, which is due to open next year (2020). 

The bridge will link the Springhead Park development to Ebbsfleet International Station and will reduce travel times on foot between the two destinations from 25 minutes to eight minutes.

The 87 metre-long structure will provide access for all vehicles across two lanes, pedestrian footpaths and a cycle path.   

Developer Countryside, which was given planning permission to create the final phase of Springhead Park in June last year, started construction in November for the 172 units.

This final phase completes the total of 800 homes to be built at Springhead Park, with the first residents expected to move in by August this year.

Countryside has already secured some advanced pre-sales, with the official release of the final phase of homes due later this month.
