CHOCOLATE FOOTPATH: Bridge at risk of collapse

It has been revealed that a bridge on chocolate path is only one of a dozen man made structures across Bristol's waterways that are in a dire need of repair or replacement.
The footpath was closed after it collapsed along with 40 meters of the embankment wall into the River Avon New Cut in January of last year.

Currently there is work undergoing to stabilise Cumberland road and introduce a bus gate to stop inbound traffic getting to the bedminster bridges with the path set to reopen next summer.

However the corrosion to one of the Bridges on the path has become so severe that it could collapse. The council has said that it will replace the bridge next year with a cost of around one million pounds.
