Since it was highlighted by reader John Snape in the thread about the Canal and River Trust’s bizarre installation of steps near Clayhanger, I’ve been pushing them to fix the horrid trip hazard on the north side of the bridge at Catshill Junction, Brownhills.
Initially, there was a concrete ramp which broke up and got worn away. Now there’s a sharp eight-inch step, which when approached from the far side is easily missed by walkers and cyclists and has caused several falls.
Today (15th September 2015), I had a message from the trust on Twitter, saying a crew will be out to repair it tomorrow.
@BrownhillsBob Good Morning! I apologise for the delay. CRT operatives will be on site tomorrow to make the bridge accessible.— CRT Customer Service (@CRTContactUs) September 15, 2015
I watch with interest.
