The authorities are busy rebuilding the High Street bridge over the railway line. Last year, it was the Wattletree Road bridge, so given the number of bridges in the area, this type of work might be an annual occurrence each January for a few years to come. The road is completely closed but at this time of year the traffic diversions are manageable.
There are temporary crossovers to let the trams reverse on either side of the work (passengers have to walk the past the work, over the bridge), and plenty of workmen to keep the job moving along!
