I do like these regular updates of money raised, going brilliantly so far, hope it keps up!Alex
Next one will be after the post is received on TuesdayMT
On the assumption that the full £500k isn't achieved quickly (I'm guessing there will be an early surge of supporters, and it will then slow down), is there a plan as to how funds will be spent? South to north? Cheapest bridges first? When are we likely to see some work starting, as that will be a great morale booster.
The Plc Board is to consider these very point at its meeting this Friday. More news after the meeting
I still think the download link to the share prospectus (or the application form itself) should be pushed right up in the web site to the top.Just trying to help get more shares sold.
I'm no structural engineer but I have done some project management work (none of it to do with civil engineering!) and the general rule is that budgetary constraints are the biggest limiting factors - hence the share offer! Looking at the evidence (its a while since I've seen all 5 bridges myself) I'd go for Little Buckland Bridge first because: it's the nearest to Laverton and therefore the current railhead, for its size, it's proportionally in the worst state and the most expensive (Broadway Stn Road Bridge is estimated to cost more but is somewhat larger) and it may need to be removed and rebuilt entirely so best we find out soon eh. I would then work northwards with work on Peasebrook Farm and Pry Lane possibly being carried out concurrently (neither bridge a significant public road and Pry Lane is relatively (!) simple). Childswickham Road would need to be done before Stn Road because of diverting traffic. All this is probably a waste of 1s and 0s on my computer but it might help. Project management theory suggests including lots of ideas before money is actually committed. It's all about money I guess! Onwards.
