This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

There is a footbridge between Osney Lane east and Osney Lane west that is currently in a state of some disrepair. It is has been established that it is in dire need of repair for the safety of pedestrians. Photos available. Can I ask

1) Does Network Rail plan to repair the footbridge in the near future?
2) Does Network Rail plan to close the footbridge in the near future because of the dangers to pedestrians?
3) Is the footbridge a right of way, given that Osney Lane east and Osney Lane west are obviously connected?
4) If the bridge is not a right of way, can you tell me when this was established as a fact, given the railways were obviously built in the 19th centuries.

Thank you so much for your time.

Yours faithfully,

Mike Magee
