Frustration as bridge condemned and closed

Tue, 20 Aug 2019

A popular bridge over the TT course has been closed due to safety issues.

The crossing bridge near the Grandstand has been condemned and closed off to the public since last month.

Visitors have taken to social media to share their frustrations over the bridge closure and lack of maintenance carried out.

The bridge is a key crossing point and one of only five bridges around the 37 3/4 mile course.

The Department of Infrastructure says the bridge is due to replaced on TT 2020.

A spokeperson said "Anyone wishing to cross the road should use the nearby temporary footbridge at St Ninian’s crossroads." - That's despite the bridge being 3/4 mile away when on foot.
