This concerns the bridge (known to Network Rail as LEC1/131A) that carries the A4146 Leighton Buzzard South Bypass over the West Coast Main Line Railway south of Leighton Buzzard. Although Network Rail does not own the bridge we do undertake regular Visual Examinations of the structure.

The most recent examination identified a horizontal fracture to the East side Abutment, 100mm below bearing shelf and I am contacting you to bring this to your attention

  • Not all bridges and structures in Buckinghamshire are the responsibility Highways, other bodies that own bridges and structures include:

  • Network Rail: structures associated with the ‘live’railway
  • National Highways: Motorways
  • Canal and River Trust
  • Rights of Way
  • We undertake annual inspections of structures on the Highway that we are responsible for, including special inspections if needed (e.g., collision damage), we also carry out regular maintenance, along with strengthening works to keep our bridges and structures safe and operational, with a minimum of disruption.

    The structures team will carry out an assessment of the bridge and if is our responsibility we will arrange for a site inspection and raise an order to carry out any works required.

    If the bridge is not the responsibility of Buckinghamshire Highways we will forward this report to the relevant organisation.
