Work on the new bridge retaining wall at Wootton

With reference to the posting of the 10th December these are the latest pictures of the work on bridge strengthening work at Wootton Bridge.

Work is due to restart on the 4th January so one must assume that a traffic lights will be in operation.

The picture below records the old design of stonework which is not longer acceptable due to its structural strength, I note that the old Newport-Ryde boundary marker has been removed from the center of the bridge [seaward side], so one must assume that it will be incorporated into the new bridge design.                                                                            .
