Kepax walking and cycling bridge

Kepax walking and cycling bridge

Improving walking and cycling routes around the county is a priority for Worcestershire County Council and Worcester City Council.

The scheme to deliver a new walking and cycling bridge across the River Severn in Worcester was approved by the Council’s Planning and Regulatory Committee on 28 September 2021.

The bridge will run from Gheluvelt Park to the east of the river to the Kepax site in St John’s, to the west.

The bridge will be a welcome addition to the popular riverside route. For the first time it will allow users to enjoy a figure-of-eight route along the River Severn, from the very well used Diglis bridge (which has had over 3 million users since it was opened in 2010) in the south to the recently refurbished Sabrina Bridge near the city centre and this new bridge in the north and back again.
