Irwell Towpath - WTF?

This idiotic design for the new bridge over the entrance to the night soil dock was exposed for all it's shortcomings over the weekend. Some idiot with no experience of the force of the Irwell in flood thought it was a good idea to put in a loose surface!

Large amounts of it got washed away on Sunday leaving this mess!

The crap in the railings show just how high the water reached.


Much of the rest of the path is covered in up to 10cm of silt - so it's pretty much out of action for the foreseeable future.

Salford Council fail again!
