MAJOR construction work is planned at Stratford in East London to replace a road bridge over the main line railway as part of the 2012 Olympics development.

Traffic diversions are planned while a new bridge is built at Angel Lane.

The Olympics authority is distributing thousands of leaflets to households in the area this week.

The existing narrow Angel Lane bridge will eventually be demolished when the new one is built closer to the station complex to make way for a platform extension.

The authority also needs to move the route freight trains use as they currently block the junction for passenger trains. This will mean more passenger trains will eventually move more quickly in and out of Stratford.

The new bridge being built alongside the existing Angel Lane is due to be ready by next August, while the old one is remaining open for pedestrians and cyclists as long as possible.
