Further delays hit repairs to North Bridge in Oundle
Despite £1.3m funds being in the bank, the repair work to the Grade Two listed North Bridge in Oundle has been further delayed because of planning issues to do with its listed building status.
The bridge was shut to heavy goods vehicles in May last year because of concerns about a number of its arches.
At the time, the county authority said it did not have the cash to make the repairs and so a three-tonne weight limit was put on the bridge and lorries were instead routed through the narrow West Street of the historic market town.
