LETTER: Area around railway bridge is daunting

Have your say

I AM writing to state my dismay at the fact that the ‘new’ bridge over the railway line is fine during the day, but when it gets dark, the light that is next to it (on the Sainsbury’s petrol station side) doesn’t work and there is no other light there so when walking across it, whether it be on your own or in a group, it can get quite daunting not knowing what or who is round the corner.

Many a time have myself and friends walked across in the dark and come across groups of people drinking on the bridge and standing all over it, making it quite daunting.

I myself, as I’m sure many other readers will agree, think it is not right – there should be light for such an area, and as stated there is a light there, but it hasn’t been working for ages.
