Let's hope the repairs are undertaken very quickly. All our councillors need to get on the case here too - not just Liz.
UPDATE: we've received the following information from Scottish Water:
"The bridge is Scottish Water's and there are some repairs required. I understand contractors are working on it for a few days. Thanks to anyone affected for their patience.
The bridge must be a quirk of history as I can't think of any other sewage pipes we encourage people to walk across! "
The spokesperson also told the Gurn that the helpline number to ring is 0845 601 8855 and not the number on Liz's tweet. No comments on this thread please but the previous article on the bridge is still open.
