Woodlands Road Bridge: February 1999

A weekend line closure in February 1999 allowed the replacement of the twin-span bridge across Woodlands Road. This is located half a mile east of Gillingham level crossing, at the extremity of the EMU depot's sidings. Roger Goodrum

The EMU sidings can be seen in the background of this roughly northward view, which shows the new span ready to be wheeled into place, complete with ballast. Roger Goodrum

It fits! Now in place, work begins to spread the ballast and relay the double-track main line. Roger Goodrum
