Lewisham transport department have agreed to carry out a structural examination of the bridge to see if there is a need for urgent repairs. If they conclude that work needs to be done they will pass this on to Network Rail for urgent action (which might help get this moving).

The focus has to be on repairing the bridge as it exists today before considering accessibility improvements for disabled users or buggies (cyclists already have a ramp for the stairs on the bridge as I understand it).

I emphasised to the Transport Liaison Committee last night the importance of making this safe before classes from Adamsrill and decamped to Willow Way, making this bridge a key walking route for young children and their parents (as well as for a large number of students at FH Boys and Sydenham Girls who are probably still the main users of the bridge).
