Reading Station Works – Caversham Road Bridge

I am pleased to report that the replacement of the Caversham Road rail bridge went very well and the road was re-opened ahead of schedule. This scheme has been a close partnership with Reading Borough Council and it is great that Network Rail were able to complete all the work they needed to, get the road re-opened and trains running in time for the return to work today. I have received several messages of congratulations but the bulk of the credit must go to Network Rail and their contractors.

There is a fabulous time lapse film of the bridge works on YouTube which highlights the huge scale of what was achieved. Enjoy!

  1. Cool! That was like watching a Channel 5 documentary! (Not one of the sex ones, obviously).
