As users of the Blackberry Hill Right of Way (Whatton FP 1) are aware the bridge over the Whipling has been ‘out’ since October 2019. This has effectively closed this Right of Way and it will remained closed until the 30th April 2020.
The Rights of Way team are aware of the issue and placed a contract for a substantially improved replacement. However, the recent wet weather has meant that no groundwork could be undertaken until the water table has decreased to an acceptable level.
A watching brief is being maintained and work will start as soon as it is safe to do so.
