TQ0251 : Merrow Railway Bridge

taken 12 years ago, near to Burpham, Surrey, Great Britain

Merrow Railway Bridge
Merrow Railway Bridge
This low and narrow brick arch is regularly hit by tall lorries. Note the white lines channelling these vehicles into the middle of the road. A railway station in Merrow has often been planned. This would be left, off photograph, in the local Merrow Business Park. However, local opposition has prevented the building of it so far. Housing contractors have offered to build the station free in return for being allowed to develop adjacent agricultural land. The road is a "rat run" between Burpham and Merrow and is unusually empty in the photograph.
