FixMyStreet ref: 5010003.
On the east abutment adjacent the canal towpath there is a continuous vertical crack and slight swelling of the concrete. At a low level, the concrete surface has spalled away. There is clear evidence of water penetration from the carriageway above. It would appear the internal steel reinforcement has corroded. I have a photo.
Thank you for making your report. We have asked our inspection team to attend this location and assess the issue. If any work is needed, they will arrange for this to happen. Should no immediate work be required we will continue to monitor this during our regular inspections.
Although we always aim to complete repairs as quickly as possible, timescales do vary as we try to minimise disruption to customers by combining activities into single closures and always ensuring the safety of our people.
Kind regards National Highways
