Bridge About to be Bypassed.

Beginning of the end for the Stockwell Road Bridge. Posted by Hello

Today I visited the Stockwell bridge again and the (de) construction has started as shown in this four-frame panoramic view. A new bridge is going in the forground bypassing the old bridge.

I hadn't appreciated before that this bridge is an unusual Pratt Half-Hip Through Truss design. I've only seen Pony Half-Hips before (see earlier post).
