Failsworth bridge floods again

Date published: 01 October 2019

Wrigley Head bridge in Oldham has flooded again and it's understood people who want quick access between Failsworth and New Moston will need to take an alternative route.

The Oldham Evening Chronicle spoke to local resident Bert Ashton, he said, "This is not the first time the bridge has flooded. I live really close to it and have seen turning back frequently.

"There is a drain at the base of the dip but the flooding is causing problems for cars passing through and people are having to take the long route around past Morrisons.

"There's also the popular dog training centre nearby that holds classes on a Wednesday and the cars aren't able to get easy access to it."

Oldham Council have been informed.
