Much to my surprise, the Canal and River Trust have got moving and effected a repair to the hazardous step from the bridge deck of Catshill Junction Bridge in Brownhills, that I somewhat wryly commented on here a couple of days ago.
The quality of the repair is concerning, and I’m not sure if it’s intended to be temporary or permanent: whichever, I suspect it will be temporary either way as it looks likely to erode away fairly quickly. I shall ask on twatter to check the status and see if something batter is planned.
However, it’s much better than before, and I thank the Trust for taking swift action and being good to their word.
Thanks also to reader Clive who spotted chaps from the C&RT photographing the bridge this morning and alerted me by email. Reader help like this is invaluable. Cheers.
I’ll chase them up tomorrow and see what they say.
