Cannington viaduct
Cannington viaduct
This viaduct was one of the first concrete viaducts built by Robert Mccalpine in 1903. There was subsidence at the base of the third arch and it was necessary to build a brick reinforcing arch seen in this view. For a short period after the railway opened a watchman was stationed at the end of the viaduct to check for movement.
