Part of the parapet mesh on the over bridge is missing (south section). As a parent of an active 6 year old, a child could easily climb through and fall on to the embankment/A1 below. I’ve just noticed it so not sure long it’s been in this condition for.
Thank you for contacting National Highways regarding a missing section of parapet.
National Highways manage motorways and certain ‘A’ road trunks roads in England, all other roads are the responsibility local authorities, in this case the structure is owned & maintained by Gateshead MBC.
