    Injuries from an accident on a suspension bridge could be the subject of a compensation claim with Cheshire West and Chester no win no fee* lawyers

    The borough of Cheshire West and Chester is found in the county of Cheshire and the local council has recently become concerned about the safety of the famous suspension bridge at Chester. The Queen’s Park Suspension Bridge attracts visitors from all around the world and couples come to the bridge and place locks on it as a symbol of their love. However, the Cheshire West and Chester Council have indicated that they plan to remove locks from the bridge as they believe that the weight of the locks may cause the bridge to sway in the event of high speed winds. Every day hundreds of people use the bridge in Chester and would be in danger if the bridge started to sway or even collapsed.

    Earlier in the year, local councils with suspension bridges like the Queen’s Park Suspension Bridge became wary after the famed Pont de Arts bridge in Paris collapsed due to the weight of the locks attached to it. There were over 700,000 locks on that particular bridge. However, the Chester bridge only has 330 locks attached to it which in total weights around 24 kilograms.

    Engineers for the local council have said that the weight of these locks has brought the weight of the bridge close to its capacity to resist the effects of high speed winds. They added that it is not the weight of the locks that is affecting the bridge and more that the wind surface is being affected which stops the bridge swaying in high speed winds.

    The council has given couples till August to remove their locks, after which they will be taken down by the local council. They do not expect that all of the locks will be claimed as many of them were placed by tourists visiting the area. However, the unclaimed locks will be stored where they can be claimed.
