New campaign to save Rhubarb Bridge in Peterborough

Community & Education

A new campaign has been launched to save Rhubarb Bridge in Peterborough. The campaign organisers say:

Rhubarb Bridge in Peterborough is under threat. Sign this petition to tell Peterborough City Council you understand the old bridge has to be removed, but you want it replaced with a new bridge straight away.

We reject the proposed plans for Rhubarb Bridge, as we believe:

  • Four separate crossings for pedestrians and cyclists to pass through the roundabout is unacceptable.
  • The design will create significant wait times for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • The design increases the likelihood of pedestrians and cyclists coming into conflict with vehicles.
  • By moving pedestrians and cyclists to ground level there is a considerable increase in exposure to pollution and poor air quality (especially for pupils who use this roundabout twice per day).
