Friar Gate Bridge covered in safety netting.

In early December 2010 Derby City Council had to cover Frair Gate Bridge in netting amid concerns that parts of the bridge could come loose !
"Debris containment netting" was installed which will stop pedestrians and motorists getting hit by bits of iron work should they fall of it.

If you have not seen how the bridge looks now then here are two photographs I too recently.

Its a real shame that funding has not been found yet to get this bridge restored.
