Incomplete safety fence

Reported via desktop in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) (NH) category anonymously at 11:07, Tuesday 25 January 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

On the A14 Eastbound just after the end of the orwell bridge the pedestrian safety fence is incomplete in parts and needs finishing and properly aligning in other parts . This was reported in November 2021 and shown as closed but the work has not actually been completed. This needs investigation as it is a safety hazard and also Highways Agency staff signed it off when originally installed then signed off the completion works which have not actually been carried out.
