That's an awful lot of bridges to put right... must be a nightmare for the local Emergency Services

"the lake district, cumbria...open for business"
"In the aftermath of the unprecedented weather that has hit Cumbria, Cumbria Tourism is keen to stress to visitors that the county is still very much open for business. It is more important than ever that potential visitors realise that, despite media reporting, Cumbria is not underwater. The Lake District and Cumbria is a vast area and there are many parts of the county that have been largely unaffected and continue to be accessible."

Dave, are there any changes on the bridge situation? I just haven't got the time right now to check it out,
cheers,
mick
(I only started this thread as the info can't be posted on Noj's thread - so this will give the thread a bump)

LWM,
The RE's had built a double single Bailey Foot Bridge to link (by Foot) the two halves of Workington. Looking at the span of some that that have gone especially that one in which the PC lost his life, they are going to require at least one central pillar. It will take time to build even a temporary one for a temporary bridge.
Dave.

Even though the main roads are clear thoughts go out to the locals who depended on these more minor road bridges, though I'm sure they have literally found a way round their current situation by pulling together Dave. When you stop to think, we do, by and large, take bridges for granted...
cheers

Dave.

Given the tens of billions of pounds we give the Ministry of Defence each year I would have thought they could have provided a vehicular bridge by now.
