Interesting photo, how long will the refurbishment take?


Comment by Hugh Wilson on 2nd October 2012 at 03:05
I carved my intials (HW) into the coping stone behind the man wearing the Hi-Vis jacket in 1961. They are directly beneath my Father's initials (JW) which he carved in 1931.

If the scrap man finds out theres metal there they will be digging it up.


Comment by dirty harry on 2nd October 2012 at 11:30
i never knew there was train tracks over this bridge .


Comment by David Barker on 2nd October 2012 at 11:55
Was looking at this sunday,dont know if those are the orginal beams, they have uncovered ,or its been repaired before, but they are in very good condition.
The work should be finished in about 3 weeks Ken,thanks Thomas.

Hugh, I think that's brilliant about you and your dad's initials!


Comment by Mick on 2nd October 2012 at 16:51
Hugh Wilson do you have a photo of your carved initials if you dont maybe a passing Wiganworld cameramen could take one for you.

David Barker, I live not very far from the bridge,so I made it may business to ask the foreman if this was the first attention the bridge has received. He informed that it was,
and it is 100yrs.old. The workers were amazed at the good condition they discovered when starting the refurbishment .
