Hawkshead bridge - repairs continue
One of the parapets on Hawkshead Lane bridge has been rebuilt following recent damage to both walls. Cracked brickwork on the south parapet has now been removed and work is underway to make good that wall.
Meanwhile signs have been erected outside both exits from the Royal Vet College at the east end of Hawkshead Lane diverting large vehicles away from the bridge.
Local residents who live along Hawkshead Lane have been campaigning against the bridge and lane being used by large vehicles. There is currently a three ton weight restriction on the approach to the narrow structure.

Only three months earlier the bridge had been closed for two weeks while repairs on similar damage were carried out.
