Resident Jill Brownsword said she felt very passionate about the bridge.

Reminds me of joining a similar group in the early '70's (1974?) with car stickers 'Friar Gate Bridge save me!' which related to the inner ring road aspirations and whether or not the bridge would be used.

Derby City Council have a legal obligation to preserve listed historic buildings and monuments in the city.

the friar gate bridge must be saved at all costs. we have lost to much of our history
I actually helped create the large sheets which were draped over the sides of the bridge on a late Friday evening and covered by the DET's front page headlines on Saturday.

"Andrew Handyside was an engineer whose work can be seen all over the world and we, as a city, should recognise this and preserve it. He was a local man, so we should keep the bridge in situ.
