New bridge on the new cycle path along the old railway
A cycle path is being built along the old Yelverton - Tavistock railway. A major problem is crossing the River Walkham after the demolition of the old viaduct, which had originally been designed by Brunel although it was modified later.

This is a temporary bridge being lifted into position on 3rd April 2007. A high-level one is planned to replace it in a few years. The depth of the problem can be seen from Crispin Purdye's image SX4970 : Site of former Grenofen railway viaduct.

Ben Naylor of Devon County Council did the specification. The bridge was built by CTS Bridges of Huddersfield LinkExternal link.
