A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Does anyone have any information as to why the stairs on our new pedestrian footbridge at Wilmer Way, Bowes Road (NCR) junction have had the stairs closed for over a month now?
We heard that someone had jumped from the stairs?
Thanks all and yes it has been almost exactly three years, which is frankly inexcusable. It didn't help that a lot of the first year was wasted in arguments about who was responsible, meaning that what should have been a relatively straightforward replacement of a bolt became something much bigger. And then the ridiculous litany of excuses since then from TfL has made matters even worse. I just really hope that this isn't symptomatic of wider organisational incompetence at TfL - but again not holding my breath!
At least now all the children who cross that road everyday can now finally do so safely - just a shame it took three years!
