TOMORROW is your last chance to put forward a suggestion for a name for Barnsley’s newest bridge.

Last month the council announced that it was giving residents the chance to name the new pedestrian bridge in the town centre.

Currently named Market Gate Bridge, it opened to the public in December.

Residents are now being encouraged to name the new bridge themselves through an online form.

Coun Robin Franklin, cabinet spokesperson for regeneration and culture, said at the time: “When Network Rail closed the Jumble Lane level crossing for safety reasons, we were given an opportunity to create something special in the heart of the town centre as part of the ongoing regeneration.

“I believe we’ve certainly done that. The ambitious design of the bridge complements the Glass Works brilliantly and adds to the continued development of our outstanding town centre.

“It was important that the new bridge was of as high a quality as the Glass Works. While it’s taken longer than we all would have liked to get here, it has been worth the wait.

“We’ve called it Market Gate Bridge for a while, but we wanted to take the chance to gather suggestions from our residents on a new name for the bridge now it’s complete. Similarly to the Glass Works, we’re looking for ideas which reflect the rich history of Barnsley.

“I’m sure we’ll receive some fantastic ideas and I look forward to seeing the suggestions our residents have.”
