The planned closure of a footpath to allow engineers to build a new footbridge over a railway line has been postponed. Contractors for Network Rail were due to begin work on the bridge, off Station Road, Great Glen, tomorrow. Martin Powell, clerk of works for Leicestershire County Council's transport department, said "operational changes" had forced the delay. He added: "The footpath will now be closed from 7.30am on Saturday, June 15, for up to six months." During the closure, an alternative pedestrian route will be signposted. Further details will be issued two weeks prior to the footpath shutting.
