  • Looking more and more unstable. Given that this is the dividing wall between the pavement/footpath bridge over the river and the road Im surprised it hasn't been addressed more speedily in fact almost immediately. Any proms or children crossing the river in danger of the top of the parapet collapsing on them from the merest vibration or air blast of a vehicle passing by.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 12:55, Sat 17 November 2018

  • Still nothing done and as predicted the stonework has crumbled with the weather. Nearing collapse.

    This could cause a major accident in the dark if not seen.
