Merrywalks Bridge Bulletin No.26 An Update from Nigel Edgeworth
Work this week has mainly concentrated on the placing of steel and shuttering for the south wall of the bridge.
It is anticipated that all shuttering will be in place ready for a concrete pour first thing on Monday morning.
There are still some sections of the north & south walls to complete.
This will happen when the Slad Brook culvert headwall is complete.
Half the reinforced concrete for the Slad Brook headwall has already been cast.
British Telecom will be on site next week to commence work on diverting the fibre optic cables that we were unable to slew over the deck of the bridge. These works are likely to take some weeks. Fortunately, this will not affect the bridge construction programme.
