Renovation of Folkestone Harbour viaduct and swing bridge
Part of the plastic sheeting covering the scaffolding, above the swing bridge, has been removed and this has exposed the green paint, which has been applied to the ironwork. The viaduct and swing bridge are being totally renovated LinkExternal link

The viaduct and swing bridge are grade II listed structures. Folkestone Harbour viaduct was built in 1843 by the South Eastern Railway Company, and was designed by William Cubitt, Chief Engineer of the line. The structure crosses the harbour with 12 arches to the west (one is hidden by the adjacent jetty access ramp) and 13 arches to the east. The swing bridge, which is included for group value, was designed in 1930 by George Ellson, Chief Engineer for Southern Railway LinkExternal link
