We have some good news from the City Council!
Thanks to one of our followers on Facebook the moulding patterns for the Grade II Listed Iron Bridge over Kings Weston Road have been uncovered in storage by the Council. They’re presently undergoing “fettling and repair” before casting iron replacement parts for repair of the footbridge.
It is likely that the reproduced new casting will be completed by the end of March with the view that the re-installation on the footbridge will be programmed into the new financial year 2016/2017. Once the complete programme for the new financial year has been agreed we will be kept up to date, but it will not be before April that this will happen. Hopefully it will be open again soon.
