    Anyone would think Highways England don't know that concrete production is bad for the environment, never mind using it in this way.

    Anything to do with Highways is bad for the environment, proverbial ducks-back

    I've signed up but having read the earlier posts, I wonder if the infill is perhaps air entrained concrete which will give sufficient support yet is comparatively easy to remove. It certainly seems to have slumped a lot. What is that digger doing on the slope? The newspaper article does quote HE as stating that the bridge arch is now supported but the fill can be removed at any time in the future, at no cost to the parties concerned, should the linking up of the 2 railways be organized and other obstacles overcome.(Note, this is my interpretation of the written words). Yes the bridge has been infilled but it is not a nail in the coffin for the railways, if people keep to their word that is, and if the quote was correct.

    Two very big “ifs” there given the rebuttal to the minister’s words in the Lords.
