Alternative options considered:

NYCC has a statutory duty to maintain its Highway structures under the Highways Act 1980. If no action is taken this could result in a continued deterioration of the structure which would lead to restrictions on its use in the near future. This could result in a longer closure and more costly repair works. If work is not carried out it would be necessary to either restrict traffic with barriers and two way lights, impose weight restrictions or close the road.
