Radford Park Poo-Stick Bridge
- Dizzie-wh (11th Aug 2017  21:20:30)

Has anyone any further news on the above??? Really missing this bridge when dog walking - means I have to go out on the main road to do a circular walk with my dogs!
I asked at Council Offices and was told that it WOULD be replaced but no idea as to when??
Anybody know any more information please??
Thanks

In April June and July this question was asked at the Council Meetings. At the Recreation Meeting it was pointed out that the work was in the conservation area and needs to go out to tender and that unlikely any work will begin on the bridge until Summer 2018. It is going to be quite expensive to build although some money will be available from grants. Until then it still means that little extra walk. Details can be read on the Council Minutes on their website.

Me too. Nearly had to wade across and get my dog today as she happily ran across the other side as she used to!

Thank you for the information regarding the Poo-Stick Bridge. Seems such a shame that we are losing it for SO long!
Apart from the dog-walking problem it used to be the venue for the Annual Duck race- very sad!!
Thanks again for the info. Red tape etc gone nuts!

as i remember it was only repaired or replaced not too many years back so why has it gone! its crazy they havnt replaced it, we got money for another pointless roundabout but not for a wooden bridge. Council's got to sort it soon.

Which pointless new roundabout are you talking about Dan? Presumably not the one on the Longmoor Road that is going to be servicing the 100+ new houses at Lowsley Farm land and being paid for by the developer!! And is going a very good job at slowing traffic down on the Longmoor Road as well!

These replies really make me laugh.
After years of trying I simply need to stop expecting people to know which authority is responsible for what. I have to pay tax so I expect to know where it is going locally and where decisions are being made nationally.

It's my money so it is my responsibility to find out who is doing what with it.

I would be interested to know why anyone thinks that a voluntary Parish Council is responsible for the National Highways road building department, or in charge of a private 'house building' company whose highways plans have been approved years ago? Why, in addition, do these things have any connection with the bridge in the park - I would love to know

The process has already been explained. Tenders have to be sent out and received. Do people have some reason to disbelieve this? Why must the automatic position be one of distrust and besmirchment?

For those interested the Radford Bridge and cost is being discussed tonight at the Recreation Meeting being held at the Millenium Hall 7-30p.m. This will also give a chance to have your say about this item.Anyone from the Public can attend.
