Nov '16 - Latest 'developments' at Folkestone Harbour.


20/11/16


Over the last few days track has now actually been lifted from the viaduct/swingbridge.

Mark Robey's photo from the 'Disused Railways' fb page clearly shows the dismantling which has been taking place. We now have it on good authority from the pages of the Nov '16 edition of 'GO FOLKESTONE' magazine that the viaduct and swingbridge are being totally renovated with shot blasting ,repainting and repointing on the list of works. More to report on this shortly.

Nov '16 - Latest 'developments' at Folkestone Harbour.


Some pictures here of the current work on the harbour arches and the swingbridge.  Lots of brand new scaffolding clamps on the swing bridge and timber stacked nearby, suggesting it may become a boardwalk with the track here shown with an odd length of conductor rail to apparently be left beneath.  Thus suggesting this is a temporary arrangement, rather than pulling the track and laying tarmac, possibly for the Triennial.  This work appears exclusive to the up line. Rumours abound regarding track removal-but it lingers on. (All photos by Andy Cadier)
