I have again received a positive reply regarding rails across Derbyshire footbridges.

The Structures Management Team will be adding the structure to our database so that a job can be issued when budgets allow, to replace the entire footbridge as it appears to be approaching the end of its safe to use life expectancy. From today’s inspection in its current relatively loose and partly rotten overall condition there is a potential risk that the knee high rail may be inadvertently giving some torsional strength to that end of the structure."
