As the flood defence work has been put on hold for the time being, due to the virus, here are some photographs of how the different parts are looking.
The existing wall on the south side was to be left but will now have to be demolished and rebuilt as it would be affected by the steel piling instillation work.
From the site of the White Bridge to the start of Carron Terrace it is very difficult to see any detail of what has been happening as the high green screen and the steel piling obscure your view.
The access along Carron Terrace is just the width of the pavement which makes it difficult to keep a ‘respectful distance’ apart so, as a concession to the residents in Carron Terrace for the duration of the virus restrictions, general public access to the Terrace is not allowed. The photos below were taken earlier.
Looking over from Low Wood Road the walls progress along the top of Carron Terrace is noticeable. The texture on the riverside is just moulded in rather than cemented stonework. This is the section where quite a few big old trees were cut down.
At the site of the old Red Bridge there has been significant work done. There is steel piling at either side of the river to support the new bridge, and the banks at either side have been raised to the new height.. A temporary bridge is in place but it is not accessible to the public.
