NEW STATION FOOTBRIDGE: About 50 people turned out to the official opening of the new footbridge at Balcombe Station last Saturday. Councillor Max Preston Bell officiated with John McCall cutting the ribbon to declare the bridge open. Network Rail and BAM Nuttall, the contractor, were represented and villagers took delight in walking over the bridge to admire the structure and the many station improvements made during the week’s blockade of the railway. Balcombe station was one of many stations to benefit when the line closure for work replacing parts of the track allowed other projects to be undertaken safely.
