Idle and Thackley Lib Dem Councillors Welcome Reopening of Popular Bridge

Councillors Alun Griffiths and Jeanette Sunderland (Lib Dem, Idle and Thackley) have welcomed the reopening of Buck Mill Bridge in Thackley on schedule.


The bridge which was closed without notice in November last year is a popular and well used route for walkers, riders and runners, as well as being used to access work, schools and retail.

Councillor Griffiths said ”when the bridge was closed residents were told it would not be reopened until the next financial year at the earliest, but after our campaign, which was supported by hundreds of local people and covered in the T and A, the council relented and found the money.”

Councillor Sunderland said “It has obviously already had a lot of use despite the conditions, and we are grateful to everyone who helped us make this happen."
