The railway through Teignmouth is in a deep constructed cutting. From this viewpoint can be seen the temporary structures put up for the replacement of the Fore Street bridge. At upper right is the rear of Salisbury Terrace.
Fore Street bridge, Teignmouth :: SX9373
Fore Street bridge, once a principal route over the railway and into the town, has carried local traffic since the realignment of the A379 in the late 1980s. Consulting engineers for Network Rail, Arup, had identified unacceptable weakness in the girders supporting the carriageway together with overloading in the parapet girders. The only solution was to dismantle the bridge (which may date from the time Brunel's GWR was scythed through the town) and install a new, stronger one. The major part of the work was carried out over the weekend of 18-19 February 2012 in a highly organised operation.
