River Thames: Richmond-upon-Thames railway bridge
The original bridge carrying the railway line from Waterloo to Windsor and Reading over the River Thames was designed and built by the engineer Joseph Locke in 1848. However the failure of a similar cast-iron bridge caused considerable concerns over Locke's design, and the bridge was replaced in 1908. The new bridge used the original abutments and piers but with new decking and superstructure. The bridge was refurbished in 1984, and is between Richmond and St Margarets stations.
