This highway is one of the busiest highways in the England. Being busy highway, numbers of pedestrians crosses the road on daily basis. This bridge will continue for long time, therefore, the pedestrians and the traffic will face lots of issues during the construction. Since there are two main roads as well on both sides: the ‘The New England Highway’ which connects ‘Maitland’, and also connects the New Castle area too. With this bridge, the pedestrians will be able to cross the roads easily. The temperature at Highway No 9 is optimum therefore there will not be any issue to the construction for the bridge. The width of the highway consisting of the two side roads is very big; therefore this foot bridge for crossing the crowd here is essential to reduce the traffic disturbance. The ongoing traffic will be the biggest problem as being the busiest route in England and it also connects the important cities in England too.
This bridge will be a boon for the people either living there or coming for shopping, because it will make the transportation easier and safe. This foot bridge is the best option economically but not the only option. There can also be constructed an underground pass on this highway which is also beneficial for the pedestrians to cross the highway. There will be issue of efficient construction of the underground pass as being the heavy traffic over the road, and lack of space. In terms of cost estimation, the underground pass cost will be much higher than the pedestrian foot bridge over the road because of extra cost for digging the ground, extra pillars and then construct the entry and exit gateways. The cost and time both will reduce if the pedestrian foot bridge is constructed instead of the underground pass. The height of the foot bridge is more than 3 meters and it has five separate lanes on bottom and the top area is used for the advertising.
