Talk: Under the Bridge – What was happening behind the hoardings?
Tuesday, 12 November, 2019 , 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to cancel the scheduled talk “Changing landscapes in Romsey Town”, we hope to reschedule it for later next year. In place of that we have something a little different…
Come and found out what was actually going on at Mill Road Bridge this summer!
Mill Road History Society is delighted that Richard Watson of the Spencer Group is coming to talk to us at Ross St Community Centre on November 12th at 7.0 for 7.30-9.0 .
The family engineering company The Spencer Group was commissioned by Govia Thames Link to carry out extensive work in Cambridge this summer to allow for extra track. The work included altering Mill Road Bridge. Richard Watson, the Project Director, will give us the full story. Do join us for a rare and privileged opportunity to see what the public rarely gets to see, and to find history in the making.
The talk will be preceded by a short introduction to the history of Mill Road Bridge by Caro Wilson, author of the report.
