BELL BRIDGE & BELL LONNING, Sebergham - (update 29th July 2017) 

Bell Bridge, Welton, collapsed on 27th January 2016, one of many bridges damaged by storms during the previous month.  This bridge was constructed in 1772, and was a Grade II listed structure built to replace an earlier bridge, also washed away by storms.  A section of Bell Lonning between Bell Bridge & Sebergham Bridge was also undermined by the storm.

Cumbria County Council (CCC) has awarded contracts to Story Contracting Ltd to design and construct the replacement bridge & to repair the road.  At the Sebergham Parish Council meeting on 26th July, Officers from CCC and its contractor gave a report on the latest situation.  

Bell Bridge - Work has commenced and is programmed to be completed by late November.  A commemorative feature and plaque are being agreed and will be installed adjacent to the bridge.

Bell Lonning - Following a meeting with CCC officers attended by the Chairman and Cllr Duncan Fairbairn, and supported by correspondence from Rory Stewart MP, on 10th July CCC announced that they would re-open this road to light traffic as a temporary measure, and develop a final solution for delivery in 2018.  At the PC meeting, CCC Officers confirmed that limited remedial safety work will commence in August and it is their intention to re-open the road by end September, although the means of restricting access to light vehicles has yet to be determined and this may create a small delay.

Concerns have been expressed that, to date, CCC has no clear proposals for the future of this road and its re-opening to all traffic, and that they are still considering options.  Officers stated that repairs to enable HGVs to use the road would be extremely costly and, when questioned, were unable to confirm whether funding for this has been made earmarked.  Further meetings with senior CCC officers will be sought with a view to achieving resolution.

 

  Public Footpaths 251010 and 251032 have been re-routed to allow work to be undertaken;
