Storesbrook Bridge – further update 27th February 2019

Please see below regarding further updates on the Storesbrook Bridge work – from the Stakeholder Manager (27th February 2019)

Just a brief update: the new bridge deck is leaving the fabricators on Friday and is due to arrive on site on Monday.  It will take several days to waterproof it, ready to lowering into position on 7th March using a 150 tonne crane.After that, we will need to bolt the sections together, before the resurfacing  of the bridge deck and approaches takes place.  This is likely to take several weeks, but I’ll send another update next week.

 

Please see below regarding the Storesbrook Bridge work – from the Stakeholder Manager (20th February 2019)

The work is going according to schedule.  The old 24 tonne bridge deck has been lifted off, and will be cut up and removed.  Work is continuing to the banks and abutments to prepare them for the installation of the new bridge deck which is currently being made off site.   There are also updates on the Balfour Beatty Living Places social media channels (Twitter/Facebook).

 

 

Dog bin emptying

The issue of emptying dog bins around the parish has been raised again. The council have explored various options:

  • Balfour Beatty have said that they do not have the appropriate license to dispose of the waste
  • Herefordshire Council have said they do not have the appropriate license to dispose of the waste
  • Various private companies have quoted but only for disposing of the waste when collected from a central point, which does not solve the issue of the bins being emptied
  • A quote for emptying four dog bins and disposing of the waste has been received – £145 plus VAT per month

CSPC are trying to see how parishioners feel about this and if they would be prepared to volunteer to empty a bin – please see the poll on the homepage. Any further comments can be emailed to the clerk – clerk@cradleyparishcouncil.gov.uk
