Squinty Bridge (again)

Posted by Jackie on January 16, 2008

Here’s another view of the Squinty Bridge, taken last winter. It is currently in the news as the other day one of the metal cables snapped and fell on to the road – amazingly there were no cars on the bridge at the time. I read one witness who said it could have squashed a bus, so it’s just incredible that nobody was hurt. It’s now closed while the damage is assessed and may well be closed for some time.

    Oh, my goodness! That’s awful to read. Hope they get it straightened out.

  2. Actually the cable didn’t snap it was the fitting to which the cable was attached at the top. What is now worrying them is whether it’s a design flaw or a manufacturing flaw and whether it was an isolated fitting or whether they are all suspect.

    I think I’ll give new things a miss until they have been tested out!!!

    Eek AHM – if that’s the case then it’s even scarier!
