An inspection was undertaken in November 2014 as part of orgoing bridge inspections investigating the access route to a future substation location. The inspection identified a number of cracks to the arch barrel, west parapet and wingwalls, which are potentially due to a combination of settlement and impact damage. There is significant loss of pointing to the abutments. The structure was found to be in fair condition overall. <1>
