The Scott Mills Bridge was officially opened on March 14th, at Welcome Break’s Fleet services, by Chris Stark, co-presenter on the Scott Mills Show on BBC Radio 1.
Welcome Break made the decision to re-name the footbridge at its Fleet Services, located on the M3 motorway at junctions 4a/5, after a campaign by Chris to get as many things named after Scott as possible.
The opening ceremony saw the unveiling of an official plaque. The event was broadcast live on BBC Radio 1 across the afternoon, and received a huge response across social media networks, at one stage trending above George Osbourne and the Budget announcement on Twitter.
Scott Mills said “I couldn’t be happier… I’ve got a bridge!” And Chris Stark said it “It’s been a pleasure… Honestly one of the best days of my life.”
