Residents will be aware that work on the bridge has slowed down dramatically over the the last few weeks. This was due to problems with the finish on some of the precast concrete units, but these have now been solved.
Another difficulty has been how to get the large tracked vehicle (the orange one in the photo) across to the other side of the line, because of the traffic restrictions on Besom Lane.
It is now planned to take the big vehicle across the railway track at night this Saturday (28 Feb).
Work should then proceed quickly. The concrete sections will still be brought round to the other side on a trailer pulled by a large tractor, via Wapley Common as previously planned.
Most of the parking area at the Besom Lane end of the Common will be coned off for the week to allow the tractor and trailer in and out.
