Bridge news! In addition to the continuing work on the Barnsley Lane bridge a report has been received from the southern end of the enterprise to say that Network Rail's engineers have been busy renewing the decking of the Duffield footbridge, north of the Tunnel, and on completion the County Council will apply a non slip surface. We are again extremely grateful to Network Rail for their generous approach to funding and managing this work on our behalf.
The Network Rail bridges team at York have been unfailingly helpful and supportive and have been assured of a warm welcome when they have chance to visit us. They supply annual bridge and structure examination reports that are invaluable to our ambitions in an area where we have no in house expertise.
