Town Mill Bridge closure
« on: October 22, 2007, 02:45:46 pm »

Hants CC have declared the bridge unsafe.� This bridge is crossed by hundreds of children & their carers going to & from the primary & secondary schools.� The only alternative route is to go into the middle of the town and out again.� Please bring all the pressure you can to bear on the Rights of Way Officer to encourage the quick repair of this vital footpath.� I have spoken to Dorothy at HCC this afternoon to stress that as walking to school should be highly encouraged, the council should make mending or replacing this bridge a priority.�

From a conversation I had with Cathy Burt (Town Clerk) last night the problem is getting messy in that I believe the bridge needs completely replacing and, because part of the replacement will be in the river/its banks, thew Envirionment Agency has to be involved.

This will extend the time taken to do any replacement work, which Cathy had previously been told would take ~2 weeks so we are now looking at 4+ weeks and that may be a conservative estimate - the Lib dems may do better after last Thursday (but I doubt it)� Cheesy

I've asked Cathy for an update to put on the website
