Take Notice Thursday - Spanning The End

In an effort to notice more of the ordinary in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday.   The idea is to take photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment,  by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in. What have you noticed this week?  
 
Have a look at what others have  been up to this week:

Lots of people came out to watch the local military unit use the removal of this bailey bridge as an engineering exercise & they have sent the metal bridge parts to their depot to use for further instruction & training.

The bridge ready to be de-constructed

 The Start of the end


Hardly a trace left


A new, 2 lane bridge will be built later this year.  A memorial plate is planned to be installed on the original stone abutments.

  1. Great capture! How much inconvenience will there be until the new bridge is constructed?

    1. Probably about 6-9 months but the increase in traffic is the reason the old bailey bridge was failing. This country road has become a bypass route of the busy, paved, lights & monitored road. The commuters are not happy but the residences along side this little road are quite happy.

  2. How great to have pictures of it how it was before they rebuild it.

    1. I will drive by to check on progress - maybe I'll have comparison photos to show.

  3. Great that you managed to capture photos of the process, and good to have it down before there was a serious problem with it.

    1. It is sad that a little bit of history was destroyed, I get why, but if only the new subdivision residents hadn't decided it was a quicker way to get to major highway.
