Thanks to Gnomad and the Commander for what they've told us for now. Keep ferreting around for info. you folks, I for one am grateful for your efforts. Personally I feel it would be a disaster for folkies if the bridge wasn't open to pedestrians for Folk Week, apart from the present and ongoing effects on the citizens and businesses in the town. Must be a nightmare for them! One obvious question is, has the local authority published any official information on the state of play and future plans? That would be interesting and maybe reassuring!
