Gaol ferry bridge

Reported via mobile in the Bridges/Subways category by Ed Hall at 20:51, Fri 16 July 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

You can ignore this for as long as you want BUT this bridge and ALL the others over the New Cut are in SERIOUS state of decay. REMEMBER these are the basis of carbon free transport routes for MANY thousand people daily. Get your fingers out.

  • The bridge and all the other pedestrian/cycling (ie carbon free transport!!!!!) On The New Cut are all in a truly shocking state of disrepair and are currently used by 1000's and 1000's daily.

  • Are we to wait until the bridge fails before it gets ANY attention. The 'Banana' and Vauxhaul bridges are also in a poor state. And as for the bridge at Sparke Evans Park. ......!! These are massive CARBON FREE transport routes for tens of thousands of folk daily as pedestrians, cyclists and-unfortunately-electric scooters between central Bristol, the City Docks and Ashton, Southville, Bedminster and Windmill Hill/Totterdown.

  • How can Marvin bang on about clean air zones and carbon reduction and yet allow some of the busiest carbon neutral walking and cycling routes become unusable?

  • Why has this really vital carbon free transport facility been allowed to decay????? It is used by literally thousands of pedestrians, scooters-unfortunately!- and bicycles every and ALL day. By the way ALL the similar bridges in the New Cut have been similarly abandoned and are falling apart -despite the absurd claims of maintenance by your engineers.

  • I am glad to say that work on GFBridge is scheduled to start soon. NOW I WILL START POINTING OUT THE OUTRAGEOUS STATE OF DISREPAIR AND LACK OF MAINTENANCE TO BE FOUND ON ALL THE OTHER NEW CUT PEDESTRIAN BRIDGES ON THE NEW CUT. IT IS TRULY DISGRACEFUL AND THREATENING THE MOST CARBON FREE MEANS OF TRAVEL IN THE AREA.

  • I am pleased that the city council is finally planning to repair this bridge and the other disintegrating bridges over the New Cut. Hopefully they will then actually maintain them.
