Bridge being used as place for drug use, damage to bridge lights/graffiti/flytipping,

The bridge is becoming a place to meet for gangs. It is becoming a problem for local residents to walk under the bridge and our local young people feel intimated, to the point of calling their parents to come and pick them up, rather than walk under the bridge. This happens during the day and on evenings. The cars meet under the bridge and cannabis is used and sold. Last night fireworks were fired at the bridge lights, trying to break them. This am there is rubbish everywhere, old fireworks and remnants of canisters (they inhale). Is it possible to connect a camera to the bridge to stop this. We also have cars parking under the bridge and doing mechanical work, swapping tyres from new cars onto older ones?? The bridge is becoming a worry for local residents.

  • Thank you for your patience whilst our inspector reviewed your report. Your concerns seem to be regarding the behaviour of individuals and whilst the structure is within the remit of Highways England the road under the bridge is under the remit of the Local Authority which I believe is Kirklees contact
