Local campaigner wins: Dagenham welcomes Cullen's bridge
21st October 2014

The boroughs of Dagenham and Redbridge, and Havering are now linked by a new bridge, which was installed on Monday.

The structure was driven down from Yorkshire in the morning before being lowered into place using a crane.

The project was overseen by the organisation Sustrans and will, when the paths are finished, allow access to those on foot, bicycle, or wheelchair, though not for cars.

It was decided at the launch on Monday to name the bridge after local campaigner and rambler, Michael Cullen who has fought for years for a bridge to be put in place.
