New railway bridge built in 7 days !!
Over the Christmas to New Year of 2021 this remarkable feat of engineering successfully took place. The works involved the halting railway traffic, removal of an embankment, erection of new bridge sections, filling-in the embankment and full reinstatement of the rail track, together with signalling.
This bridge restores the navigable passage under the railway and a fundamental milestone in bringing back to boating use the Stroudwater Navigation.
