Footbridge Damage: Clarification

20/05/2020

Llanbradach ward councillor Colin Mann today issued a clarification  in reference to the damage caused to Tynygraig footbridge over the main railway line – now closed to the public -  on the road to Caerphilly Skip Hire.

Councillor Mann said: “It had been suggested locally that the firm had not reported the matter to the authorities. I’m happy to clarify, following an assurance from Caerphilly Skip Hire, that the damage was reported to both Network Rail and the British Transport Police. The firm also tell me that the damage did not happen in January but it was unable to go into further details following guidance from insurers.

“The firm has also further assured me that all accidents and incidents where required are reported to the relevant authorities in a timely fashion, especially bridge strikes.”
