The bridge at Barrow Road which carries the TPT north of Meadowhall was struck by a lorry last week, some photos of the damage below.
SCC's structures team have been out to assess and have decided that in the interest of safety the shared use footway at Barrow Road should be closed to pedestrians and cyclists. They also recommend that the track should be closed until Sustrans and our structures team have been out to assess the full extent of the damage. We know that there are no heavy vehicles going over the bridge but we’re not sure of the impact on the overall structure.
I’m not sure how long the sections should be closed for but should have more information next week after the assessment has been carried out by Sustrans.
