EASTHAM BRIDGE REOPENS …WITH A PLEA FOR COURTESY
Eastham bridge, which collapsed almost a year ago, has re-opened bringing to an end the misery caused to farmers, traders and commuters as well as pedestrians and riders across the Teme Valley. Although some work will be ongoing it is hoped that all those who need to cross the River Teme at that point will be able to do so safely.The work, costing in the region of £1m. has been paid for by Worcestershire County Council.
Councillor Ken Pollock (pictured) said: “We have been able to rebuild the bridge under ‘permitted development’ which means we have not had to wait for a lengthy planning process to be undertaken. As a result the bridge could be no wider than the original but we felt it important to get the work done quickly.”
