Steppingstone Bridge Spalding

Minor progress of sorts on the lighting issue, although sadly no actual light at the end of the tunnel, because it still doesn’t work!  At least I now know that it is a waste of timing asking either Network Rail or LCC to fix it.

I received a letter from LCC today, giving me some information on the situation regarding the lack of a working light on the bridge.  It would seem that, despite being the county council and actually having responsiblity for the footpath that crosses the railway line via this bridge, LCC can’t get any more sense out of Network Rail than the rest of us.  It’s difficult to believe that a company that relies so heavily on public money for its survival, can be so arrogant when it comes to addressing the concerns of members of that public.

Below is a copy of the letter I received today along with one sent to John Hayes MP. 

Bottom line is, if I can find £3,500, the county council is willing to install and maintain lighting on the bridge.  I will now be seeking some support from other Spalding members at the next Spalding Town Forum.  This support could be by tapping in to the ward budgets, or maybe by seeking some help from the Spalding Power Station community fund.  Watch this space.
