Building Bridges – October 7 Update

Work has been progressing well on the North Weald Footbridge, though recent inclement weather is starting to slow it somewhat.

On September 29, Roger cut out sections of angle iron, to make space for new channelling to be installed.

Doug and David continued working lattice sections on platform 2, whilst John treated the timbers for the landing; after lunch, he and Roger fitted the wood on the platform 2 side. After a bit of cutting, it all dropped into place very nicely.

This week, the timbers shown above were securely bolted down, and channelling has started to be installed back on platform 1 side.

Weather aside, we are making good headway on the project…
