    This is what the same section looked like in May 2019 (screenshot taken from Google Street View). It is much worse now. This bridge looks like it is in danger of collapse. Needs URGENT assessment.

  • I am so worried about this that I have just phoned the Network Rail emergency number and they are going to look at the bridge.

  • I have read the priority categories on your website. Which category has this apparently failing bridge been assigned to? I am concerned there may be an immediate danger of the bridge collapsing, risking the life of road and rail users.
