Fears over height of bridge walls

I have written to my local county councillor , Michael Ensor, asking why the temporary barriers on the Woodsgate Park Bridge have been removed.

They were put in place over concerns that the wall of the bridge was too low and therefore potentially unsafe.

The barriers have now been removed but as far as I can see nothing has been done to increase the height of the wall.

To date I’ve not received a reply from Mr Ensor.

My concern is that a potentially fatal incident could occur either by someone (possibly a child) going over the wall or objects being pushed over the wall into oncoming traffic.

Are you able to investigate further and get any answers?
