Potential damage to bridge. Obstruction.

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Northamptonshire Highways at 11:18, Monday 29 January 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5504711.

There are ash trees growing next to the bridge superstructure on both sides. These are nearly touching the concrete beams. In a short while, they will touch, and with wind sway, the trees will crack the concrete. Water will seep in and corrosion of reinforcement will take place. It is inevitable. The trees need removing now, before damage is done. It is common sense. Also the proximity of the trees to the bridge prevents close safe surveying.
