Work begins on Kendal bridge revamp
1:40pm Tuesday 7th January 2014 in News
WORK began on Monday on a major Network Rail project to spruce up Longpool bridge in Kendal.
The 170-year-old bridge is being cleaned up in a £400,000 scheme due to be completed in April.
It will see the structure grit-blasted and repainted alongside steelwork repairs and pigeon proofing.
Rail services between Oxenholme and Windermere will not be affected during the project but a partial road closure of Longpool has been agreed – with traffic underneath the bridge will be restricted to a single lane controlled by traffic lights.
