Earlier in the week the Gurn had heard rumours from one of our regular unreliable sources close to River CC that work would soon be starting on the decking. All was confirmed when Liz tweeted today.
And on facebook Liz gives all the credit to River Community Council for forcing the Highland Council Administration into action. You can see from the pictures below that there has been serious decay in both the upper and lower decking. Decay that didn't come overnight. Back in October we published pictures sent in by one of our regular readers who was concerned about the state of the decking, perhaps if repairs had been made back then some money might have saved to the public purse as another winter's decay would have been avoided.
