Funding offered for bridges at accident blackspots
The Building Bridges Initiative is inviting applications for funding for pedestrian bridges to prevent accidents. BBI is operated by Concept Outdoor, a subsidiary of Pacific Investments. The aim is to provide funding for pedestrian bridges at key blackspot locations, initially in the UK and ultimately on an international basis. Likely candidates for consideration include developments in densely populated areas with high traffic volumes. Funding is currently available for four projects which must be concluded in principle - with planning consent in place and so on - before June 2006.
