Update on the Bridge – January 2017
Rutland County Council Highways are meeting with the Leicestershire County Council structural engineer soon .The delay was due to the necessity to carry out further site investigateions in order to ascertain an engineering solution. The team need to identify a method to lift and re-alighn the walls without having to dismantle them and rebuild. However this may not be possible due to the way the walls are moving as they have not only sunk but have rotated forwards. Rutland County Council will keep the parish updated and are aware of the frustrations amongst residents about the closure. The temporary closure which expires in February will be extended.
Update – February 2017
Work to repair the Bridge will commence on February 14th 2017 and is programmed to take three weeks
