Residents have queried with me why the footbridge over the rail line south of Harris Academy has recently been closed.
I took this up with the City Council and the Team Leader, Bridges and Structures has advised :
"One of the steps on the north side has been very recently damaged and presents a significant safety issue to users.
The bridge closure was done urgently so we didn't have a chance to provide advance notice unfortunately.
We have a hardwood replacement ordered but don't have a precise timescale for its renewal due to material shortages, hopefully should be a matter of days."
