Highways England update re Footbridge Cleaning

Initial trials were carried out on 28th November and some daytime work has been progressing since then. The bulk of the work which requires lanes to be closed under the structure will be carried out at night. This is currently planned for 7 to 9th December.

    I did witness at least half a dozen workers in High Vis from Highways England this morning, cleaning the lower barrier on the Sherwin Arms side, By midday they had gone, presumably the conditions are not ideal, or the material they were using was not adequate for these temperatures. , or maybe this was just an experimental exercise.

  2. Cllr Martin Plackett Bramcote Ward BBC says:

    Highways England have today informed me that traffic management will be in place during the nights 7-9 December to complete the cleansing of the bridge.

    I tried to post a photo today (saturday) of the progress on the bridge but for some reason it was returned. However, I’m pleased to say that the bridge is about one third cleaned and looking good..I wonder though, if it would be too much to ask if someone could do something about the walking area across the bridge as it’s very uneven and when the frost and snow arrives it’s like a skating rink.
