The meticulous brickwork continues as my lower photo shows.
In the last few days, the site have taken delivery of a large number of concrete cast items (top) which are being formed to bolster the underneath of the bridge – presumably the “parapets” mentioned in the literature. (Or are these the “copings” mentioned? Answers on a postcard please….). They have been inserting the metal pins into the casts on site, with the aid of a cement injection device.
As with most people, one of my great hobbies is watching other people work, as you can tell from the detail of my descriptions above!
The whole project will cost £1.5 million and is scheduled to end in October.
