Metal fencing has been deployed across North Bridge in Halifax as work begins on the installation of vital safety measures, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
At the end of last year, new CCTV surveillance cameras were installed, which have already been used to alert the Council and partners to vulnerable people on the bridge. Additional works are now taking place to install anti-climb mesh and new sloping metal covers on existing features, to reduce accessibility to the bridge’s parapets.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Strategy, Councillor Barry Collins, said: “The Council has an important role in preventing suicides and it’s something we take very seriously. “We’re investing around £200,000 in improving safety measures on North Bridge.
This is part of our work to reduce access to the means of suicide – an important aspect of our suicide prevention plan. “The overwhelming majority of suicides are preventable. We’ll continue to work with other organisations as part of the Suicide Prevention Group, to do all we can to reduce the rate in Calderdale.”
