On Thursday 22 March 2012 a significant milestone was reached with the placing of beams on the west span of the Churton Park bridge. It is expected that the beams for the other span will be placed shortly, which will give a permanent access across the stream for the new road.

Construction progress is easily viewed from the pedestrian walking track that leads from the end of the existing part of Westchester drive around the construction area, down to under the bridge and then out to Stebbings Road.

The attached images show the last beam of the west span being lowered into position and the view of the underside of the bridge from the pedestrian walkway.

Then on Friday 30 March the gap was finally bridged, with the beams for the east span being lowered into position.

The images below show one of the last beams being transported to the site along the new road, with the transporter being towed by a bulldozer, and the beam being lifted into position by the very large crane.
