Councillor Ben Thomas has reported on Twitter this evening that, “scaffolding [is] going around Gelynis footbridge tomorrow.” He also states that the repairs could take 2 weeks to complete.

People noted when we first reported this news that the bridge is frequently used and the alternative routes are not particularly safe.
We’ll keep an eye on the progress and hopefully the repairs will be completed in good time.
