In-filling of heritage bridges to stop

The government’s road agency will be forced to remove hundreds of tonnes of concrete it used to bury a Victorian bridge arch despite offering a £450,000 sweetener to allow the controversial scheme to stay.

Eden district council’s planning committee resisted the offer by unanimously deciding to refuse National Highways (NH) retrospective planning permission for a crude infilling project at Great Musgrave, Cumbria, that was widely condemned as “cultural vandalism”.

The widespread outcry over last year’s scheme prompted a government-ordered pause to the agency’s plans to infill or demolish dozens of other historic railway bridges elsewhere in the UK.

Burying of Victorian bridge in Cumbria must be reversed, says council | Cumbria | The Guardian
