3 days on and a lot has happened.

The intersection of Bridge Rd and Church St has been renewed.  It reopens to motor traffic in Church St on Tuesday 12th.

Track is being renewed in the usual method starting at Church St. and working east.

The concrete breakers (6 in the photo) are finishing off removing the last of the old mass concrete Bridge Rd track near the river beside the Bridge Hotel.

The paving is being finished off with the usual small vibrating roller  on the bridge itself - with the original rail left in place.

Mal Rowe - still amazed at how quickly these works are achieved.
