At long last things seem to be moving on the bridge front. The control boxes have been installed . The access to the operating panel is now in the wrong place and the route to be taken now involves stepping over a small wall. According to British Waterways it has taken a long time to get the bridge sorted because they are making sure they get what they want (hence all the rework).
Well all I can say is if this is what British Waterways wanted they have no right being in charge of a bubble gum machine let alone our waterways!
There is a second panel on the other side of the bridge, it can just be seen in the top left hand corner of the fence in the picture below. I didn't see the point of a close up as one ridiculously large box wrapped in a tarp looks much like another.
I cannot believe that British Waterways were able to do this to a listed structure without the Planning Department getting involved.
This box is supposed to have a low impact on the environs of the bridge. It is a travesty! No a tragedy!!!
