Thank you for your further email regarding the works to the Duffill Bridge.

The draft option study has been completed and is currently being reviewed. As part of the review we are liaising with the owners of the adjacent land that will be affected as part of the proposed works.

We anticipate this review will be completed by the end of November 2019.

Thank you for contacting me.
