Goat House Bridge on Penge Road in Norwood, which has been closed for repair works by Network Rail for six months, is now fully open to traffic again, which may come as a relief to any Crystal Palace fans on match days.
Residents were angry that the bridge strengthening work was started in August, scheduled at the same time that another road bridge in the vicinity, on Tennison Road in South Norwood, was also subject to closures.
The Goat House Bridge works require some finishing work over the next week, with night-time traffic control lights from 9pm on Sunday until 5am on Monday (February 10), while during the day there will be a footway closure over the bridge to allow the brick wall to be completed.
There is likely to be one further night time traffic control, from 9pm to 5am on February 21 to 22, to deal with a broken slab under the bridge.
