Flood damaged bridges reopened
7:00am Wednesday 10th October 2012 in News
FOOT and bridle bridges damaged during flooding have been repaired and reopened.
Flash flooding damaged bridges on the footpath and bridleway along Dowles Brook, which runs through Wyre Forest, while three bridges were damaged and one washed away during flash flooding in July.
All routes have now reopened in time for autumn following repairs by Worcestershire County Council's Countryside Service and contractors.
Conservative councillor John Campion, the county council's cabinet member with responsibility for localism and communities, said: "It is great news that the countryside service has carried out the necessary repairs to footpath and bridleway bridges and they are now reopen in this popular area for walking, cycling and riding.
“The Wyre Forest is particularly beautiful in the autumn and I would encourage people to get out and about using these routes again."
