This is a narrow bridge that is designated in law as a public footpath unless it has officially been stopped up. An inadequate sign that only asked cyclists to dismount, rather than compelling them to by law, on the Locksbrook road end of the bridge has been removed, either officially or by other persons. Pedestrians of all ages and abilities are being harassed by cyclists to move over and let them pass and in some instances collisions have taken place. Unless a legal stopping up has taken place cyclists must dismount and walk over the bridge. A new sign is required that stipulates it is legally a footpath only and cyclists must dismount needs to be put in place at each end of the bridge
Thank you for your report, it will be reviewed by the appropriate team.
