May 2020 – Weymouth to Portland, Dorset

Work continues in Rodwell, Weymouth, at the Buxton Road overbridge (grid reference SY 675779) on eponymous The Rodwell Trail, which re-uses the northern part of the former joint LSWR and GWR branch line from Melcombe Regis to Easton.  The work, which should be finished in June, is an ‘inspection on steroids’, in which any faults are being remedied by the local council’s contractors.  (Tim Chant)
