Floods Update

Following the flooding in December 2015 the East Park Management team have been working hard to assess the current situation.

Initially, our Park Management Team, including our volunteers, concentrated on surveying all 1,450 bridges on Rights of Way that we are responsible for across the NP to assess their safety. Following this we have then surveyed path surfaces to assess damage caused.

Across the whole National Park, the total is currently 46 footbridges which are not useable and are in need of either replacement or significant repairs, and 214 further footbridges which are passable but damaged, and also need repair. However, put another way, this means that nearly 97 per cent of our bridges are either open, or passable with care.
