Merrywalks Bridge Bulletin No. 33 from Nigel Edgeworth
Slad Brook culvert temporary works are now complete. This is comprised of temporary pipe to carry the flow of water from the culvert to the canal. See photo below.
We have managed to get a good seal on the pipe where it connects into the culvert.
We previously had problems with this when leakage caused the site to flood in heavy rain conditions.
Now that the area is clear and dry, work can commence on preparing the concrete piled wing wall in readiness to receive the final brick facing.
Scaffolding is currently being erected within the bridge opening to support shuttering required for the construction of the bridge deck.
Steelwork for the reinforcing for the concrete deck will resume after the Christmas break, 23rd December to 10th January.
