Footbridge has now reopened

The footbridge connecting Erneside with the town centre will re open immediately and will remain open throughout the remainder of the Summer months. It is expected that this work will now take place during September.

This decision has been taken as the bridge will need to undergo a series of constructional inspections to establish whether the scaffolding design is suitable and the bridge has the capacity to withstand the additional weight the scaffolding would place upon it. Customers can be assured the footbridge remains a safe, convenient and vital link between the town centre and Erneside.

We also appreciate the understanding and patience that our customers and tenants have shown during this time and we want to extend our thanks for the ongoing positive support that we endeavour to retain.

As always we welcome your feedback as we know it’s being provided to help improve the level of service we offer our customers.
