Friar Gate Bridge scaffolding, No restoration plans

A few people have contacted me to say they are restoring Friar Gate Bridge but this is NOT the case.
The scaffolding that has recently been put up under Friar Gate bridge is in fact preperation work for some safety netting that is going to be put under the bridge.

I mentioned this work in my blag last month : Friar Gate Bridge to be wrapped up for xmas.

This is how Friar Gate Bridge looks at the moment:

On two consecutive Sundays in December Friar Gate will be closed so that the netting can be attached to the bridge.


  1. Quite tempting to just get a few buckets of paint and spruce it up while the scaffold is there doing nothing!

  2. It looks like they did a good job making sure that pedestrians can see the scaffolding on the pavement.
