Many thanks to everybody who got involved in the campaign to reopen the well used and vital Buck Mill Bridge.
When it was closed in October residents were initially told repairs would not be considered until the next financial year, but following our campaign, with over 600 signatures on the petition in a few days and coverage in the press and on social media the Council have agreed that the bridge should be reopened.
Works are expected to be completed by the 19th January 2021 based on the latest materials delivery time.
We are disappointed that it will be another 2 months before it can be used again but this is still a huge impovement on what was originally threatened.
We have asked for regular updates on the progress and will be keeping a careful eye on the situation.
