Pedestrian pathway across Bromsgrove brook is closed
8:00am Thursday 1st November 2012 in News
A PEDESTRIAN pathway across the Spadesbourne Brook has been closed after safety concerns.
The bridge, in Market Street near to Bromsgrove’s public toilets, was closed after Bromsgrove District Council officers spotted a potential structural problem with the bridge.
A structural engineer was called who confirmed that work is needed for the bridge to again meet the required British standards.
The bridge has been closed as a precautionary measure and signs have been put up warning the public.
Councillor Michael Webb, whose portfolio covers leisure and cultural services, said: “People’s safety is our main concern and thanks to officers’ diligence, we identified a possible issue with the bridge and can take action immediately.”
A district council spokesman added that the council was currently looking into the repairing of the bridge.
