  • Thank you for contacting Northamptonshire Highways. We have inspected the parapet today (29th November) The end pilaster is displaced, however there are no safety concerns as bridge is infilled and the parapet is no longer required for it’s original prupose, to protect vehicles from a drop in height. We will reset the coping when we get the opportunity and have the funding to do so.
