I hadn't forgotten that updates on this are occasionally required!
The attached pics, taken on a rather grey 26th October, show the Plymstock end of the bridge where the tarpaulin has now been removed from the end section, although the scaffolding remains in place. You can just about see that they have painted the structure in a tasteful medium / dark grey and appear (thank goodness) to have resisted the temptation to decorate it with pictures of seagulls or butterflies as they seem to do on other refurbished bridges.
As you can see, work has also begun on the ramp to take the cycle way / walkway down to road level where the railway was chopped off for the access road ('The Ride') to the recycling centre.
Hope these are of interest - I have copied to Keith in case they are of use for website news. Cheers Trevor
Very good for website news - many thanks, much appreciated KJ
