North Street closure – the latest

BRIDGE WALL REPAIRS IN NORTH STREET – THE LATEST

As you may be aware the wall in North Street near the Railway Bridge is in a perilous and dangerous condition, which has led to the footpath being closed for some time. Havant Borough Council have found themselves in an unenviable position and despite extensive investigations they have been unable to locate the owner of the wall. This means that a replacement structure needs to be provided using unbudgeted public money and so must be built to a standard, which will not require high levels of future maintenance. Havant Borough Council have a put a huge amount of time and effort in to trying to minimize the impact of closing North Street to do this work but clearly this work is going to have a significant impact on Emsworth and the surrounding areas.
