“We have placed signage near the footbridge to inform local people and apologise for any disruption this may cause,” the spokesman said.
“We are now in the process of working with our delivery partners to undertake further safety inspections and we will then be in a position to determine the next steps.

We need your help. For the last ten years, Caerphilly Observer has provided an award-winning, balanced, and independent news service to the people of Caerphilly County Borough.
However, running a professional news service comes at a financial cost. Caerphilly Observer is predominantly funded through advertising and while this has supported us in the past, the future economic outlook in light of the coronavirus outbreak looks bleak.
We believe the public should be informed about their community, coherently and with context. We also believe that public interest journalism should not be put behind a paywall.
We are asking readers for their support to help us develop and grow our service.
Our membership costs just £3 a month and in return, you won’t have to put up with adverts on our website.
