Safety fence incomplete

Reported via desktop in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) (NH) category anonymously at 12:54, Wednesday 13 April 2022

This is the third report regarding this defect . The pedestrian safety fence alongside the footway on the Eastbound A14 just East of the Orwell bridge has at last had the missing pieces installed but even when driving past at 50 miles per hour it is obvious that it has not been fully completed as both vertical and horizontal alignment are wavy lines . I would question if it was carried out by an experienced contractor and if so how it was approved by the Highways Agency inspector . Please arrange for this work to be completed properly .
