The Bridge’s progress
I passed the site of our footbridge this afternoon just after four. The workmen were there, so I asked about it. No they can’t open it quite yet, but it should just be a couple of days.
As I was there, they opened up the bridge end of the section of path that had been closed. They didn’t know why it had been closed, either, unless it was Health and Safety (a possibility, and a good scapegoat if not). If it was on some spurious safety grounds, they’ve scored a great big own goal there: the fallen leaves and moss that accumulated on the unused path are certainly more slippery than that path would normally be.
