Bridges

Today saw lots of odd bridge jobs, the first of which was bolting up the angle brackets for yesterday’s crosshead.

Just a few simple holes and bolts and job done!

Then we went onto installing some missing shoulder packing. The first being at Farmers Bridge. The props are to ensure the crosshead is sitting exactly where it should be before installing the packing.

We had a few of these to do here.

While there it was a good chance to do a complete bolt tighten.

Another bit of packing was required at Winters Flat, with lots of ground level bolt tightening also undertaken.

We finished off the day by doing a thorough ground level bolt tighten of Rifle Range Bridge. Leaving only Sawmill Rd, Walmer Rd and Muckleford Creek for Tuesday’s Gang. Check back Monday for details of Tuesday’s Meeting Point.
