Following discussions with both Derby City Council and Derby University we understand that the replacement bridge will be installed this financial year (April 2018-March 31 2019) and that the University and Derby City Council will be paying 50% each to replace the bridge into the allotments.
There is currently no date set but it seems more likely to be in either the autumn or winter.
As soon as we know more I'll put an update on this website and on our facebook group.
Secretary. (May 18)
