I have just heard that the Fulscot Bridge will be closed for a further six months.
Apparently Network Rail have discovered that there are issues with the structure of the bridge.
Initially, when they came up with the short delay that they put down to the weather, I was prepared to give them the benefit of the doudt. However, now I think they should have surveyed the bridge properly in the first place.
I will push for the bridge to be open as soon as possible, but Network rail are a law unto themselves. It is very obvious that the diversion road through North Moreton is not coping well with all the extra traffic.
