|Frouds Lane bridge and engineering works|
However, the disruption caused to rail and road travel has also become a regular feature of local life.
|Frouds Lane is closed|
So it has been a relief to many to hear the latest progress report from Network Rail on the works.
Accordingly, NR reports that the final pre-cast bridge units were installed in place over the course of the weekend of 18/19 January, which allowed the concrete bridge deck to be set. This major structural stage was completed on 4th February.
The next steps are the waterproofing of the deck, followed by installation of the bridge aproaches and stabilisation of the road embankments.
Many thanks to Carrillion Team for the update - let's hope the work continues successfully apace, so that normality can return and we can enjoy the improvements!
