Merrywalks Bridge Bulletin No. 44

The towpath walls have been further advanced this week.

The shutters have been erected and the concrete will be poured today, Friday 25th.

The photograph left shows the special formwork brought in to form the curve of the wall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The base reinforcement for the west towpath is now fixed.

This section will also be poured today as the concrete pump is on site.

Backfilling operations to the east towpath wall will progress next week. 

The bricklayers will also be on site to commence the brick facing to the north west wall and front of Slad Brook culvert headwall.
