Wall collapse in Bridgwater – update

Posted on 6th November, 2011 in News

The river wall has moved 7mm overnight and the experts feel that it is only a matter of time before it collapses.

The Utility companies are onsite and continue to work towards securing utilities in that area by laying pipes and cables around the damaged area. So today there is a wider area of disruption whilst large holes are dug to cut and divert. Wessex water are concerned that no salt water should enter the system as this would have a catastrophic effect on the sewerage treatment process.

The area around the collapse continues to be unstable and people have not been allowed back into the properties to collect anything. The only exception is the Vets have been allowed back in to remove some animals and feed others.

The area along West Quay continues to be blocked off and will continue so for the foreseeable future.

Tomorrow our (SDC’s) team will be working to find more permanent solutions for the affected tenants – so please bare with the us as this will mean some reassignment of Officers from their normal duties.
