£1m project sees new railway bridge at Misterton

The £1m project saw the 100-year-old bridge removed (pictured) and a new one installed on time with crews working day and night.

Two 67-tonne stanchions were placed on the original brick walls, and two 110-tonne sections of bridge were laid on top.

The next phase of work to upgrade the Peterborough to Doncaster line will see a new bridge over the Chesterfield Canal, while work continues on replacing the bridge on Soss Lane.

The upgrades are part of £280m improvements to the 86-mile stretch of railway line, which will also see an automated crossing, operated from a new signalling centre, at North Carr Crossing.

The level crossing re-opens on Monday October 6.

Then the level crossing is again closed from 8pm on Friday October 31 to 8am on Monday November 24. This time the crossing will be closed for signal commissioning.
