"To achieve this, the parapets and pilasters on the eastern (park) side of the bridge have been taken to footpath level and rebuilt.

"Some were made offsite and then installed onsite and the rest were made in place on the bridge."

Traffic measures are in place as the project carries on.

The spokesperson added: "Thanks so much for your patience as this important work continues and we can't wait to see this important structure restored to its former glory."
