Bridge replacement, Barden Upper Reservoir
Bridge replacement, Barden Upper Reservoir
The original wrought iron bridge by Sir Alexander Binnie that gave access to the valve tower was replaced in 1996 by a new steel one, floated out onto the reservoir in sections and lifted by a barge-mounted crane. The valve tower is a typical Binnie design and was nicknamed by the project team the "sweetshop at the end of the pier".
