Tathall End nr Hanslope bridge works

We'll be carrying out maintenance works on five access bridges in the village of Tathall End starting on 3 August. The work will take around 3 weeks to complete and a road closure will be in place during this time so we can carry out the work safely.

The small bridges allow vehicles to access the properties over the small stream.

Following a structural assessment, it was decided that the old access bridges, which are small concrete slabs, must be removed and replaced with precast concrete ones which will make the installation quicker and easier.

If you have any questions about this or any other structures work please email or call 01908 252353.
