Footbridge south of Harris Academy - an update

Residents will recall that, some months ago, there was unfortunate recent vandalism of the footbridge over the rail line south of Harris Academy.

The repair has taken some time for the council to arrange as it requires a rail line possession agreement with Network Rail.

We are pleased, however, to advise that the council's City Development Committee recently approved the tender to allow works to proceed.

Michael sought and obtained at committee an assurance that every effort would be made to ensure repairs are completed and the footbridge re-opened in advance of the school returning after the summer holidays.
