Footbridge to be installed over right of way
A NEW footbridge is being installed over a public right of way in Mablethorpe.
Funding from East Lindsey District Council and the Lindsey Marsh Drainage Board has helped to reinstate the bridge over The Cut at Quebec Road in Mablethorpe.
The Cut is a popular and well-used access way from the town to the beach.
Councillor John Upsall, portfolio holder for finance and property, said: "The bridge forms part of a public right of way so it was important that it was reinstated as soon as possible to maintain that right of way.

"This may only be a small project in terms of cost but it is significant to those it affects.
"It will benefit local people as well as holiday makers staying at the nearby holiday complex and caravan parks."
David Sisson, Lindsey Marsh Drainage Board Engineer said: "The board welcomes the opportunity to work in partnership with ELDC to secure this essential pedestrian link for the benefit of the community by ensuring that the channel's flow carrying capacity is unaffected."
The original bridge become too weak to support even pedestrians and a subsequent structural report recommended it be closed off.
The work should be finished in time for the August Bank Holiday weekend.
