The County Council has announced that it intends to delay the majority of the repair works intended for the Haven Bridge due to concerns over the safety of pedestrians and drivers. Although I agree that better safety precautions are required, I am concerned that the council took so long to realise the need to take these steps.
Haven Bridge has had a number of maintenance issues in recent history, and it is important that it receives any necessary repairs quickly. For this reason I have written to Norfolk County Council asking them to confirm a date for these vital repairs and also asking them to explain why it took them so long to announce the delays in their programme.
