Bottom step broken from steps to footbridge.

Reported in the Bridge-Damaged/ Missing category anonymously at 19:15, Tuesday 2 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2139744.

On the north side of the footbridge over the river Nene, the bottom step has recently gone missing. The bottom step was already somewhat high, now you either have to jump down or go down backwards holding on to the rails. This is a very popular path walked by many people daily.

  • Thank you for contacting Northamptonshire Highways. We visited the footbridge yesterday, 4th June and found all the steps in place. However we have noted that with increased use during lockdown, the approach path has worn away which has increased the height of the step above the ground, and there are a few maintenance repairs we need to carry out. We have instructed our sub-contractor to improve the approach paths and carry out the maintenance works. We are required to repair this damage within 24 months of notification, however we anticipate it to be repaired with one month, subject to our sub-contractors availability.
