Bridge construction at Brackley, Northamptonshire

Bridge construction at Brackley, Northamptonshire

L2496. Photographed during the early stages of construction, this is the site of the road bridge that carried Turweston Road across the Great Central's London Extension on the northern edge of Brackley. The bridge's piers and abutments are beginning to take shape, as a steam powered crane works on the roughly laid contractor's rails. Interestingly, the earth wall on the left of the picture shows that the railway cutting has yet to be excavated past the point of the bridge.
