Aug 2020 – Bennerley Viaduct, Notts/Derbyshire

Broxtowe Council has now transferred its promised £100,000 grant to the Bennerley Viaduct project, and the Friends of Bennerley Viaduct remain very active with other funding bids. Restoration work has resumed following the lockdown period, and a recent trial-dig to assess the stability of the ground where the new access ramp will be built found no problems. RPL is putting the ramp works out to tender and has finished the design for the decking, which will be the next job to go to tender. (James Winstanley)
