Eyesore at bridge

Share this article

An environmental eyesore was how Chapel Parish Councillor Nigel Bradbury described the buttresses of the Manchester Road railway bridge at last Tuesday’s council meeting.

Network Rail has previously been asked if it could take remedial action to improve the appearance of the bridge, which is badly marked by white calcium deposits from water flowing from the railway track.

They said no action could be taken, but the council is to request a site meeting to look at the issue.
