Railway access road, new culverts (1) – start confirmed

4 August 2009

We have just had confirmation that the Environment Agency’s contractors are due to move onto site next week for the work on the railway access road, Redbridge, Point 3. They will be based on land just north of the old Abingdon Road. This is the biggest piece of flood-related work to be done in the area since the work at Towle’s Mill in 2006-07. It is expected to take about 13 weeks. New large culverts will replace the totally inadequate existing small bridge.
