Canal Bridge damaged.

Featured Posts

So who gets the Bill to repair it?   Won't be the Old Bill,  cos they didn't hit the bridge.  Won't be the scallies, because they have taken to their toes, and any way they weren't insured.  Might be the owner of the car that actually damaged  the bridge, but since they were stationary and apparently not at fault that seems a bit hard. They are already carless through no fault of theirs.   Wonder if the Motor Industry  Insurance fall-back scheme will cough?

 

 CRT will no doubt have to ante up first and after that some Lawyers will no doubt have a Bill of their own ( only it will be called a fee account and bigger than an ordinary Bill)!

According to the article the council want to replace the bridge and had submitted plans.  Perhaps they will get their way.

Judging by the 'photo the bridge was overdue for repairs/maintenance anyway. Could be a good time for a new bridge & the Council seems keen.

From the linked article:

"Updated plans for a new £3 million structure directly next to the existing bridge were officially submitted in August and are due to be considered by the council's planning committee in February."

There have been discussions about replacing the bridge for 3 or 4 years at least. The plan was to build a new wider bridge on the Brownhills side of the existing one.

The moral of this story is don't park by canal bridges! 😢

The bridge near the Shovel in Cowley had some spectacular parked car pile ups, until they painted double yellow lines either side of it. Drunk drive dominoes, four cars and a motorcycle was the biggest hit.

CRT claim off the stationary cars insurance who in turn will claim off the stolen car owner's insurance.
