Construction of the A4440 in August 1987
Construction of the A4440 in August 1987
The cuttings above and below the railway were made first to allow access. The railway bridge was constructed on this side on a foundation that extended under the line in a tunnel on either side . This allowed the line closure to be for only a long weekend as the remaining embankment was removed and the bridge was pushed into place.
