Saturday September 17th: Meet at the Bridge Inn, Cotmanhay. at 10:00 am.
The structural assessment of the viaduct will commence on the week commencing Sept 19th. This structural survey is a critical component of the project. The workparty’s main task is ensuring that all the pier bases, piers and underside of the structure can be inspected by the engineers and that the entire length of the underneath of the viaduct is accessible. Most of the piers have now been cleared but the wet summer has resulted in a lot of secondary vegetation regrowing and covering some pier bases that had previously been cleared.. The work will primarily be centred around vegetation removal. If you would like something a bit gentler, the paths around the viaduct will always welcome a bit of litter picking. come for an hour, a morning or a full day. Forget the gym – get some exercise in the fresh air under the viaduct. Tools and gloves provided. All welcome. Contact Kieran for further details.
